"Quirky and Intriguing" Katie Fforde "Rosalind Minett is a writer of originality and psychological insight." Sarah Duncan. Amazon: "Astute, ironic and weirdly pleasing." "An entertaining read, with stories that are crying out to be narrated on the radio" "Expertly-crafted characters . . .exhibits a genuine talent for tapping the depths of the human personality" Goodreads: "Quirky and humorous, these easy-to-read stories are deceptively deep and thought provoking!" "Humour and pathos abound in equal measure." "clever weaving", "stunning endings" "From the humour of "Underwhelmed", through the irony of "A Fitting Matter", the glorious gluttony in "First Feast" and the unexpected twist in "Anti-dote", the ten tales are character driven, sometimes unnerving and always amusing. Told with wit and clarity." "When do we get a second helping?"--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

My favorites: The first tale of a business woman forming a relationship in a park with a man and his dog. Then the schoolgirl buying her first bras at Selfridge's, not knowing about her connection to an American relative. A wife that hates the smell of fish confronting her pregnancy and her husband's preferences at the fish market. A woman given everything from an adoring, affluent husband, and how that wears off.
I enjoyed these tales for the piquant writing, the skill in setting and character that heightened and made the tales real. They were stories with believable issues, much enhanced by the lively style and perspective that gave strong reading moments.
Elfreda’s fitting her first bra took me back to own experience, though not nearly so mysterious as hers, and Marion’s steely ambition to get what she wants, or thinks she wants, left me flashing back to my own determined and foolhardy younger self. Like dark chocolate, this collection rewards with bittersweet sensations and full satisfaction. I recommend it ... with tea or coffee.
