Description

In this sparkling collection of stories, Nadine Bismuth treats us to a series of sharp, witty, but compassionate portraits of modern urban women torn between a desire for male companionship and the trials and tribulations of navigating couplehood in the real world. Not only Rebecca Leclerc, dissecting her now defunct relationship with an egocentric media star, but also Myriam, contending with her anxious dependence on a rich lover, Bénédicte and Rosalie, mulling over their status as singles in a Saturday night line-up for a trendy dance club, Caroline, with her acid, ironic, bemused take on her husband’s infidelity... and more. Bittersweet and hilarious, these tales confirm Bismuth as one of our most lively, entertaining, and intelligent observers of the contemporary social scene.

Editorial Review

"Nadine Bismuth is already known as an accomplished short story writer; she has proven it once again with this collection of stories that are in turn impressionistic, psychological and frankly satirical.”

— Governor General’s Award Jury Citation
