First ever story collection from the inimitable Lionel Shriver This landmark publication, the first collection of stories from a master of the form, explores the idea of “property” in both senses of the word: real estate, and stuff. These sharp, brilliantly imaginative pieces illustrate how our possessions act as proxies for ourselves, and how tussles over ownership articulate the power dynamics of our relationships.
“Shriver is a virtuoso at describing what it is to be uncomfortable in one’s own skin…. Her stories are filled with irony and psychological shafts of light. She understands the oddity of what it is to possess…. [and] has the gift for making one instantly curious, entertained, involved and ready to move in – no matter what the property.”– The Guardian
