  • A witty and warm collection

    The Times
  • This entertaining collection of 14 short stories showcases all the familiar tropes, stylistic flourishes and trademark deadpan humour that make their author such a pleasure… A delight

    Mail on Sunday
  • Delightfully imaginative stories

  • These stories often read like fairy tales for adults, and seem intended, above all, to raise a smile… they do this very nicely… Labels is an amusing and clever story, its absurdist tone well fitted to its subject

    Financial Times
  • Louis de Bernieres is a very genial observer of human folly. These stories are warm and witty, peopled with fallible characters at the mercy of their own prejudices and insecurities
