Fast, precise, hilariously timed and mercilessly honest, this lively anthology of stories lays bare every pretension ever to have offered comfort to the middle-class psyche. From the zeal of a mother’s group staging a world-record breastfeeding attempt, to couples role-playing their way into parenthood at a third world "adoption workshop," to partners so affectionate they only communicate through baby talk--and lovers so addicted to arguing that even acts of God can't deter them--this humorous collection represents an exclusive English interpretation of award-winning writing. With stories so delicate and fleet-footed that even the most single-minded protagonists prove likable in their raucous charm and with insightful cultural references that highlight the differences and similarities of modern human nature, this intriguingly sardonic literary grouping is a refreshing foray into relationships, life, and love as a competitive sport.
