Description:
From the award-winning novelist and short story writer, Lionel Shriver, comes a literary gem, a story about love and the power of a gift. Sometimes we are given gifts we really don't want.

Excellent short novel, with the usual sparkling wit and keen observation of what makes us vulnerable, endearing and infuriating in relationships.
