In these tales of loss and pleasure, lovers and family, a woman learns to conduct an affair, a child of divorce dances with her mother, and a woman with a terminal illness contemplates her exit. Filled with the sharp humor, emotional acuity, and joyful language Moore has become famous for, these nine glittering tales marked the introduction of an extravagantly gifted writer.

Moore has such a way with wordplay, puns and obscure references, that I finished the book certain that I had missed quite a bit of the smart stuff. The writing is clever and sometimes gimmicky (such as a diary presented in reverse chronology), and well worth a read by short story aficionados.
