Descrizione libro Knopf Publishing Group, United States, 2012. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. 193 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A new collection of stories--dazzling, poignant, wickedly funny, and highly addictive--by the internationally acclaimed writer whose work The Times (London) calls dangerously close to perfection. These thirteen stories brilliantly focus on aspects of contemporary living and unerringly capture a generation, a type, a social class, a pattern of behavior. They give us the small detail that reveals large secrets and summons up the inner stresses of our lives ( It is a blissful relief to turn to the coolness and clarity of Helen Simpson . . . She is, to my mind, the best short story writer now working in English --Ed Crooks, Financial Times). Whether her subject is single women or wives in stages of midlife-ery, marriage or motherhood, youth, young love, homework, or history, Simpson writes near to the bone and close to the heart. In one story, a squirrel trapped under a dustbin lid in the back garden vanishes, and a woman s marriage is revealed in the process . . . In another, a young woman on her way for an MRI reflects on new love, electromagnetism, and Sherlock Holmes, and afterward goes to a museum and finds herself wanting to escape into one of the paintings. And in the title story, two men on a flight from London to Chicago--one an elderly scientist, the other a businessman upgraded to first class--discuss climate change and what flying is doing to our shrunken planet, this while the in-flight entertainment shows the crop-duster scene from Hitchcock s North by Northwest. When a passenger in the seat across the aisle suddenly becomes ill and dies, the plane is forced to land in Goose Bay, Labrador, to the utter frustration of the two men. In the story s moment of reckoning, one of the men, furious at the delay, says to the other, I don t care about you. You don t care about me. We don t care about him [the deceased passenger]. We all know how to put ourselves first, and that s what makes the world go round. These darkly comic, brave, and, says The Guardian, deeply unsentimental stories brilliantly evoke life s truest sensations--love, pain, joy, and grief--and give us, with precision and complex economy, a shrewd and painfully true glimpse into our dizzying 3-D age.
