A compelling new collection from a writer acknowledged as one of the world's greatest living short-story writers, and winner of the Man Booker International Prize 2009.

Now in paperback.
Includes beguiling, provocative stories about manipulative men and the women who outwit them, about destructive marriages and curdled friendships, about mothers and sons, about moments which change or haunt a life.
