About this title: These extraordinary stories are sweet and melancholic divulging the minor tragedies of people with an original and black humour. The stories are full of weird and wonderful characters - deaf mutes, bigamists, spinsters, hairdressers and jazz players. She captures the casual absurdities and idiosyncrasies of her native south characters with a sympathetic and subtle humour. A truly wonderful collection.
