"A supremely perceptive writer of formidable skill and intelligence," (New York Times Book Review), Tessa Hadley is the author of four critically acclaimed novels, including The London Train, a New York Times Notable Book. A regular contributor to The New Yorker, Hadley returns to the short story form in this brilliant collection, her first since the celebrated Sunstroke and Other Stories. Married Love showcases beautifully her formidable talent for writing domestic fiction that rises about the genre to become literary art.

In these 12 short stories, Hadley is able to communicate everything about her characters within the story. Her stories are understated and address class and family. Recommended.

Bad sign when you start skimming most of the last stories. Good character descriptions but hollow stories not ending up anywhere - endings very unsatisfying.
