Review by

A serious, melancholy book about memories, of people and places passing through the night. Sad lives. Excellent language, at times a little on the cerebral side, sounding almost like a series of prose poems, or personal essays.

Review by

Seemingly random and yet interconnected view of characters, situations, destinies, relationships, passions and drabness. Life as it truly is - unsorted and always filtered through our very own views and opinions. There is nothing larger than life here, the scale is dis-comfortably real and right and we feel this and subsequently do not feel quite safe. Still we carry on reading, fascinated by Elizabeth Hardwick's wonderful, painfully beautiful writing. This is a kind of book one returns to; it is like a window upon human existence, a scrapbook of samples which show the usual and the unusual next to each other, and therefore somehow made equally important.
