Synopsis

Ten Stories About Smoking by Stuart Evers

'Touching, true and shocking in their humanity. Here is a book that delights the mind' Irish Times These stories find dignity in quiet lives and beauty in dark corners. They tell of allure, betrayal, nostalgia, solitude, seduction, damage and desire. They are stories of youth mislaid and love lost, and of recovery. They go to the heart of things. 'Brims with yearning' Independent on Sunday 'Raymond Carver and Alice Munro echo throughout. Exquisite' New Statesman 'Brilliantly restrained and emotionally mature' Scotland on Sunday 'Observant and understated' Guardian 'Inhaling each story is a hauntingly wonderful experience' Easy Living 'Original and quietly devastating' Daily Telegraph
