A book of short stories about love and relationships. Not much to say - light, easy to read, often charming.

Review by

was surprised to find that this was a collection of short stories. This author who I see an a writer of long feeling peaces does not seem to be one who would do well in this form. I was pleasently surprised. While in many ways the short stories are lacking in story each of them is a small masterpiece.
