I Wish Someone Were Waiting for Me Somewhere

Front Cover
Penguin, 2003 - Fiction - 193 pages
5 Reviews
Hailed by Voici as "a distant descendant of Dorothy Parker," prize-winning Anna Gavalda has caused an international sensation with this dazzling collection of short stories selling over 700,000 copies in her native France. With arresting naturalism, a lively variety of perspectives, Gavalda writes simply--and beautifully--of human beings longing to connect. Gavalda has a knack for capturing our inner as well as our outer dialogues with perfect pitch, provoking reflection, pain, and laughter in equal measure. The stories in I Wish Someone Were Waiting for Me Somewhere are as wicked as they are insightful, as stylish as they are sparse, as fiercely unsentimental as they are emotionally wrought.

Had some good advice, but is geared towards those who are older and are dealing with houses, family, wills and the like. Not a fan of the Q&A format. Read full review
