"The first ever collection of short stories from the wonderful Zadie Smith is surely a must-read for her many fans"

The first ever collection of short stories from the wonderful Zadie Smith is surely a must-read for her many fans. Ten stories are entirely new and published here for the first time, and the other seven have been selected from her contributions to the New Yorker. Settings range from New York to a dystopian Felixstowe. Includes my favourite, "Miss Adele Amidst the Corsets", shortlisted for the BBC National Short Story Award and "Kelso, Deconstructed" which explores the last day of an Antiguan immigrant who was murdered in north-west London in 1959.
