paperback ISBN 13: 9780956017307 | ISBN 10: 0956017304
Collected together for the first time, VG Lee's short stories show the trademark humour and pathos that have attracted a cult following for her novels.
Here are inconsiderate aunties, cheerfully selfish friends and a man with a pimple fixation. But the short form also brings out the author's darker side, as she captures the mother who destroys her own daughter and the downtrodden lover who seeks a deathly revenge.
If you like your sapphic scandal with a slice of Battenburg, this is the book for you.
