Inhaltsangabe: A combination of Jolley's two short story collections, Five Acre Virgin and The Travelling Entertainer, these stories focus on people overcoming or being overcome by life's challenges. They are wise, funny, and often perverse works by a unique author.
From Library Journal:
In these 21 stories, prize-winning Australian author Jolley reveals to us the quiet lives of ordinary people at conflict with their environment, delinquent children, older relatives, marriage partners, and even squatters, as painfully aware of their failures as their dreams. Her characters range from single mothers to traveling salesmen, wood cutters, immigrants, and charwomen, all of whose lives overlap like patchwork quilting. The background to these stories is always Australia, but the conflicts are universal, and they are communicated to us with a sparseness of language that could be Chekov's, with the pleasing gentleness of a Barbara Pym.
