Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: `Kay gives hugely of her talent; pours it onto the page . . . These stories charm, move and entertain' Guardian This fierce, funny and compassionate collection explores every facet of that most overwhelming and complicated of human emotions: love. With winning directness, Jackie Kay captures her characters' greatest joy and greatest vulnerability, exposing the moments of tenderness, of shock, of bravery and stupidity that accompany the search for love, the discovery of love and, most of all, love's loss. `Jackie Kay's characters sing from the page' Daily Telegraph `At the heart of it is a faith in stories themselves: a belief that the most desolate history can be lent coherence if you tell it right' TLS `Kay's humour and optimism are transcendent' Sunday Herald
