About the Author

Barbara Trapido was born in South Africa and is the author of seven novels. She lives in Oxford, England.

Reviews

"An unpretentious and very funny book . . . A complex and highly polished work . . . . Barbara Trapido has that rare ability to make her characters respond to small misfortunes and irritations exactly as people do." - New York Times

"This is a first novel, for Barbara Trapido, but if established writers could get this good on the seventh try, readers would be the richer for it. What a lovely novel . . . Barbara Trapido, where have you been?" - USA Today

"If you've been looking for a modern love story that shines with off-beat charm and sprightly intelligence--not to mention elegance of style--take heart . . . . This brief account cannot do justice to the wry, civilized tone and understated wit that lights up Trapido's writing." - San Francisco Chronicle

"A staggeringly competent first novel." - Boston Globe

"Should be required reading for all men who are interested in smart, attractive women, and in what life looks like from their side ... Funny, charming, teeming with life, and real." - Nick Hornby, Esquire
