Summary
"Everyday life crackles with the electricity sparking between men and women, between parents and children, between friends. A son confesses to his mother that he is cheating on his girlfriend; a student falls in love with her lecturer and embarks on an affair with a man in the pub who looks just like him. Young mothers pent-up in childcare dream treacherously of other possibilities; a boy becomes aware of the woman, a guest at his parents' holiday home, who is pressing up too close against him on the beach. A daughter remembers running away from home with her mother; two sisters from a family of nine vow together to grow up free from dreary women's problems"--
Summary
A new collection of short stories by the author of Accidents in the Home explores the various undercurrents that lie hidden inside domestic relationships despite efforts to preserve the facade of a loving and stable family life. Original. 15,000 first printing
