About this work

Description

"The stories in this collection all orbit the subject of love: love given and withheld love craved and lost, love met and disappointed; the differing shades of love between friend, between parents and children, between children and adults. Set in Venice, Greece and Rome as well as London and the English countryside, they take us into the complex geography of the human heart. From one of our most subtle and engaging writers, these psychologically acute, sharply written and often witty stories handle an age-old theme with startling ingenuity."--From cover.
