A series of ten short stories by the author of The Girls A father frets over his distracted daughter and reflects on life and family during a visit from his grown up children over the Christmas holiday An aspiring actress who works in a store selling overpriced clothes sells her own worn underwear to men she doesn’t know A man ruminates on his own troubles as he edits the biography of a billionaire who seems set on rewriting his own lifetime achievements An ageing and fading movie man meets an old friend for dinner ahead of attending a showing of the first film produced by his son A young woman hides from the paparazzi following a brief affair with an actor for whom she’d been a nanny to his son A young man who lives with his pregnant partner and her brother dreams of escaping to a new life A middle aged man travels to his son’s boarding school to attempt to resolve a problem whilst wrestling with issues in his own life A woman remembers her first real friend and time spent with her free living parents as an eleven year old A man in his early fifties meets old friends for a meal and then broods over his past and present relationships women and his financial worries Two women attending a ‘pre rehab’ centre in the desert become obsessed with a male celebrity who checks inThese stories show glimpses of people’s lives with the focus typically on one participant in each tale In most cases we witness a good deal of reflection how did I get to this place what might have gone differently There is disillusionment here too as each seems to feel that things might have taken a different path that it could have worked out better Relationships with friends family and lovers are dissected and examined worries and frailties exposedLike all short story collections I’ve read some engaged me than others but I did find myself wondering if I’d made some of the same erroneous decisions if I harboured a number of identical regrets or if I hid similar weaknesses to the protagonists here Yes it’s one of those books that made me think about my own life what I’ve done and what I haven’t done Have I lived as they say ‘my best life’ I suppose that uestion is almost certain to be answered in the negative perhaps the so the older you getA few stories ended a little too abruptly for me just as I was becoming invested in where it would go next but that’s just how it works with short stories And mostly I was happy to witness these segments of a bigger story and move on These satisfying snacks can be gobbled up uickly and I really enjoyed the of settings the diversity of characters and mixture of emotions the stories stirred in me I wouldn’t call the stories uplifting but most captured my attention made me pause and thinkMy thanks to Random House UK Vintage and NetGalley for supplying a copy of this book in return for an honest review
