Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Shena Mackay is frequently and copiously praised — Elle deemed her "the best writer in the world today". It's no wonder, considering the gallery of strange and memorable characters who populate the stories in The World's Smallest Unicorn. These include a would-be biographer who visits a home for retired clowns; an expatriot who returns from Hong Kong to find his family and London dramatically changed; an elderly woman, once a fearless journalist, paralyzed at the thought of meeting the daughter of her dearest friend; and a budding writer who becomes an amanuensis for a famous woman novelist — with disastrous results. In these feisty new tales, Mackay combines the mysterious and the everyday to scintillating effect.
