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. And when that gift comes from an ex-love and is a sculpture that you and your partner are meant to live with forever, there's no giving it back. This book is a gem of a novella from the resonant and searing voice Lionel Shriver.

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