LoveReading Says

One of our Books of the Year 2014.

The American Lover has been shortlisted for the BBC National Short Story Award 2014.

A collection of sensitive, absorbing and beautifully rendered stories.  Only three are new, the rest (nine) have been published in various forms from the Guardian to Good Housekeeping.  The three new are the title story, A View of Lake Superior in the Fall and Lucy and Gaston.  Covering love and longing, death and loneliness, ambition and lack of fulfilment, their joy is in the writing, in being in her company.  She is so good.  This is her fifth collection.
