Prize-winning Anna Gavalda caused an international sensation with this dazzling collection of short stories, selling over 700,000 copies in her native France. With arresting naturalism and a lively variety of perspectives, Gavalda writes simply - and beautifully - of human beings longing to connect. Displaying a knack for capturing both inner and outer dialogue with perfect pitch, while provoking reflection, pain and laughter, these stories are as wicked as they are insightful, as stylish as they are sparse, as fiercely unsentimental as they are emotionally wrought.
