Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the critically acclaimed author of Hotel World comes a collection of uniquely inventive stories that thread the labyrinth of coincidence, chance, and connections missed and made.

What happens when you run into Death in a busy train station? (You know he's Death because when he smiles, your cell phone goes dead.) What if your lover falls in love with a tree? Should you be jealous? From the woman pursued by a band of bagpipers in full regalia to the artist who's built a seven-foot boat out of secondhand copies of The Great Gatsby, Smith's characters are offbeat, charming, sexy, and as wonderfully complex as life itself.

Synopsis:

Brilliant new collection of short stories from the award-winning author of "Hotel World". A search into chance, coincidence and knowing the whole story.

Synopsis:

A brilliant new collection of stories from a much loved and highly praised author.
