A man tries to bury his wife and marry his young mistress in the same ceremony. Astrologers rejoice when the Government decides to cancel April and May. A new lover purchased online arrives pre-programmed with unappealing habits. And a wife buys her husband an unusual gift – a new heart. Incisive, smart, funny and fearless – Sarah Salway makes every word count. Her very short stories capture a whole world of fantasy and ordinariness in as little as a single paragraph. Written with passion and biting wit, these taut tales are ambitious, often deliciously dark, and always deeply human.
