This anthology chronicles the many forms of crisis in contemporary relationships. All the stories proceed from a central premise: that we are unerring in our choice of lovers - especially when it comes to the wrong person! Review: As darkness falls on the fracturing relationships of his generation, Kureishi adeptly skewers their trauma to the page in his new collection of short stories. It is breakup and breakdown for the principally male characters in this world of mid-life crisis. There is an almost millennial fear of an unpredictable future as older wives are exchanged for younger models, children are sidelined by new pregnancies and even penises walk away to start new careers. Kureishi's writing is stark and very affecting, it stabs at the unstable reality of human relationships and happiness with an uncomfortable truth. (Kirkus UK)
