Humour, fantasy, rage and despair both help and hinder the protagonists of these stories as they navigate changing circumstances, accumulating losses, moments of comprehension and tenderness. Here is the woman, hoping for a quiet day at the zoo, who finally snaps at a white man’s racist tirade and vents years of fury; the micro-celebrity who practises lines for a chat show on which he’ll never appear; and the woman who walks out of her honeymoon suite at midnight, perhaps for good. Unsparing in her close examination of human relationships, A.

L. Kennedy proves once again why she is regarded as one of our great storytellers.
