In one new volume, an irresistible collection of stories from two previous works, SMILE and CHANGING BABIES, with additional stories, previously unpublished in book form.
‘What informs Moggach’s excellent stories is not just the exactness of her observation, but the quality of warmth and affection’ Sunday Times
From swimming on Hampstead Heath to illicit trysts in hayfields, or counting stock in corner shops and stifling parenting classes to pedicures in Florence, this collection of short stories includes some previously unpublished in book form, and covers the gamut of human nature – our foibles, our loves, our desires, hopes, ambitions and failures. Rich in observation and speckled with a delicious dark humour. THE SELECTED SHORT STORIES confirms Deborah Moggach’s place as one of our finest observers of human life.
‘I love clever books that make me laugh. Deborah Moggach, queen of social comedy, is on top form’ Cathy Rentzenbrink
