From the author of the Man Booker Prize-- winning literary sensation and long-time Globe and Mail bestseller The Gathering , comes a dazzling, seductive new collection of stories.

"Anne Enright's style is as sharp and brilliant as Joan Didion's; the scope of her understanding is as wide as Alice Munro's; . . . her vision of Ireland is as brave and original as Edna O'Brien's." -- Colm Tóibín

A rich collection of sharp, vivid stories of loss and yearning, of the ordinary defeats and unexpected delights that grow out of the bonds between husbands and wives, mothers and children, and intimate strangers.

Bringing together in a single elegant edition new stories as well as a selection of stories never before published in Canada (from her UK published The Portable Virgin, 1991), Yesterday's Weather exhibits the unsettling, carefully drawn reality, the subversive wit, and the awkward tenderness that mark Anne Enright as one of the most thrillingly gifted writers of our time.

Short, short stories. Very Irish. Well-crafted, but not exceptional.
