Following on from Jackie Kay's award-winning first novel Trumpet, comes a collection of superlative stories.

In true Kay style these small masterpieces cover a great deal of emotional and narrative terrain, from an immaculate observation of the female physiognomy to the bewilderment of the elderly; from silent hidden love to a lifetime reminiscence of an immigrant's England, these stories are warm and tender, frightening and funny. They confirm the arrival of a major storyteller.
