(1996)
A collection of stories by

 
 
Emily Perkins captures perfectly the intense world of love, art and waitressing in this debut collection of short stories. She brings modern life into harsh and comic focus with a cinematic vision for character and dialogue and a cast of young and painfully vulnerable metropolitans.

Genre: General Fiction

Praise for this book

"A stunning first collection: addictive, smart, scary, wise and profoundly funny. Perkins has the enviable Alice Munro knack of crafting tiny stories with the scope of novels, characters who convince within a paragraph, dialogue which stings with its unresolved sadness and comfortless truths." - Julie Myerson
