Today a Woman Went Mad in the Supermarket: Stories

Brand: Bloomsbury Publishing   |   Status: Hết hàng

"Short stories that pack a pithy poignant punch by a 91-year-old mistress of the craft . From the first page, dialogue and descriptions crackle through the quotidian and Hilma's piquant prose illuminates scenes both prosaic and profound" ― Harper's Bazaar


"There are equal amounts of drollery and despair in these wonderful stories . Wolitzer's take is fresh and funny and finely tuned to the carefree moments that lighten the emotional load . It's so beautifully done, sly and spry, the perfect mixture of funny and sad" ― Daily Mail

With a foreword by Elizabeth Strout

'Electric: with wit, with rage, with grief, with the kind of prose that makes you both laugh and thrill to the darker, spikier emotions just barely visible under the bright surface. What a wonderful collection of stories' - Lauren Groff

Another day! And then another and another and another. It seemed as if it would all go on forever in that exquisitely boring and beautiful way. But of course it wouldn't; everyone knows that.

In this collection, Hilma Wolitzer invites us inside the private world of domestic bliss, seen mostly through the lens of Paulie and Howard's gloriously ordinary marriage.

From hasty weddings to meddlesome neighbours, ex-wives who just won't leave, to sleepless nights spent worrying about unanswered chainmail, Wolitzer captures the tensions, contradictions and unexpected detours of daily life with wit, candour and an acutely observant eye.

Including stories first published in magazines in the 1960s and 1970s - alongside new writing from Wolitzer, now in her nineties - Today a Woman Went Mad in the Supermarket reintroduces a beloved writer to be embraced by a new generation of readers.
