By Montana 09 Jan 2012 5

I came across this book online about a year ago,intrigued. Finally,I bought it,and read it in less than 2 hours. It is extremely well-written. I hope she writes more books,because she has to be in my Top 5 List of Contemporary Authors of this generation. She describes how a moment with a random stranger can change your life. She tells tales of people who have lost all hope,but then have an epiphany and change for the better. She makes you open your eyes to the little moments in life, because those are what matter most. I absolutely adore this book. Anyone into poetry and of whom loathe superficial novels you see nowadays,this book is meant for you.

Review quote

"* 'There's beauty and tenderness here as well as great wit and, like the best stories, a delicious sense of the unexpected' - Metro * 'Intimate, original and more than a little strange, these are tales about people who are baffled and often overwhelmed by life.' - Daily Mail * 'Blisteringly good.' - Guardian"
