The English in Paris take on Édouard Manet at his own game; a family holiday sets in motion events that will last many years; an abandoned author finally seeks revenge...

In this collection of sly, witty, unsettling stories, the novelist and artist Charlotte Cory shows her skill at creating lives in a few vivid strokes, as well as her unrivalled eye for the manias and delusions that bubble away under even the most apparently comfortable of façades.

“One of the pleasures of reading Charlotte Cory…. is the sense of exuberant invention... A natural storyteller” - The Guardian

“In quite another league of invention” -  Financial Times

 “Exuberant, witty, bizarre... Sophisticated, sure-footed and entertaining” - The Observer

“Strange, almost exuberant nihilism... Every story has imagination, wit and compassion” - The Sunday Times
