Description

This landmark publication, the first collection of stories from a master of the form, explores the idea of "property" in both senses of the word: real estate and stuff. These sharp, brilliantly imaginative pieces illustrate how our possessions act as proxies for ourselves, and how tussles over ownership articulate the power dynamics of our relationships. In Shriver's world, we may possess people and objects and places, but in turn they possess us.

Professional reviews

"This masterful collection showcases the biting insight that has made Lionel Shriver one of the most acclaimed authors of our time, described by the Sunday Times as 'a brilliant writer' with 'a strong, clear and strangely seductive voice.’ “As ever, Shriver cuts close to the bone! […] Distinctly chilling.” DAILY MAIL “Breezy, mordantly comic […] if the test of a futuristic novel is its eerie proximity to the present, this passes with flying colours.” DAILY MAIL"
