I read this book over two nights and for me, the two outstanding stories for me are `The well brought-up woman' and `One too many', where each story leads you to an unexpected twist.
Both writers are spare in their approach and it's this simplicity of style that makes these stories work, when you reach the end of each tale, it leaves you thinking. They convey loneliness, dislocation and the sense of outcast in the modern world and where the smallest of things can lead to a personal crisis and their characters wrestle with these situations by trying to keep their heads above water.
Simply put, it's short story writing at its best.
