You Think It, I'll Say It

by Curtis Sittenfeld

You Think It, I'll Say It Synopsis

A dazzling, smart and razor-sharp story collection by Curtis Sittenfeld, Sunday Times bestselling author of Rodham and American Wife. The theme that unites these stories is how even the cleverest people tend to misread others, and how much we all deceive ourselves. Sharp and tender, funny and wise, they show Sittenfeld's knack for creating real, believable characters that spring off the page, while also skewering contemporary mores with brilliant dry wit. 'DO-OVER', ONE OF THE STORIES IN THIS COLLECTION, WAS SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2018 SUNDAY TIMES EFG SHORT STORY AWARD.

You Think It, I'll Say It Press Reviews

The stories in You Think It, I'll Say It feel so contemporary that we might worry they will date - except we'll want a record of these times. We may be grateful for authors who chose to set their work in this exact political moment, when few Americans can maintain personal relationships across the Trump divide...The immediacy of these stories makes them effortlessly enjoyable to slide into, like new garments so comfortable that you decide to wear them out of the shop. -- Lionel Shriver * Financial Times * Has a rare and magical combination of accessibility, wit, and serious thinking. Sittenfeld was shortlisted for this year's Sunday Times EFG Short Story Award, and she demonstrates these qualities again in this deft short story collection... Impossible to put down...She is saying what we are thinking. * Sunday Times * I so loved this collection. One of my favourite books of last year. -- David Nicholls A strong collection about false assumptions and double standards...in these 11 social comedies, whose preoccupations - gender dynamics, celebrity, class, envy and disenchantment - are at once universal and yet specific to the moment we are living through...You Think It, I'll Say It has caught the attention of Reese Witherspoon, who plans to turn it into a comedy series starring Kristen Wiig. Smart move. * The Times * Each of these stories could be expanded into a blockbusting novel. There is no writer alive who inhabits her characters so knowingly, or is able to send up contemporary attitudes and mores as expertly...clever, funny, revealing and a joy to read. * Evening Standard *
