No Thanks, and Other Stories
Fiction. Short Stories. "Like Jean Stafford, Edna O'Brien and Shena Mackay, Sarah Smith reminds us that the turmoil of family and self is the short story's terrain, a complex space that is most fully seen in the clarity with which a highly focused, personal prose can detail the world. These are wonderfully vivid, well-crafted stories - sometimes raucous, always strangely disconcerting" - Michael Anania.
