‘What informs Moggach’s excellent stories is not just the exactness of her observation, but the quality of warmth and affection’ Sunday Times

From swimming on Hampstead Heath to house-sitting with troublesome dogs, or illicit afternoon trysts in Soho to pedicures in Florence with recalcitrant teenagers,. this collection of short stories includes some previously unpublished in book form, and covers the gamut of human nature – our foibles, our loves, our desires, hopes, ambitions and failures.

Rich in observation and speckled with a delicious dark humour, FOOL FOR LOVE: THE SELECTED SHORT STORIES confirms Deborah Moggach’s place as one of our finest observers of human life.

‘I love clever books that make me laugh. Deborah Moggach, queen of social comedy, is on top form’ Cathy Rentzenbrink
