From the inimitable Jane Gardam, whose "Old Filth" trilogy cemented her status as one of England's greatest living novelists, comes a collection of short stories that showcase her subversive wit, gentle humor, and insight into the human condition. Gardam's versatility is on full display, while her sublime grasp of language and powers of observation remain as provocative as ever.
