About the book

From Mexico to London to the Middle East, these six exuberantly witty stories are linked together by themes of seduction, bereavement and conception. As a minor character in one story reappears as the hero of another, it quickly becomes clear that neither the narrators nor their contraceptives are particularly reliable.

    I love the idea that each book is numbered and limited, they're extra special because they're personalised with those sought-after signatures, and they are not on tip-in pages.
