Few writers give me such consistent pleasure -- Zadie Smith She has such great psychological insights into human beings, which is rare. She is one of the best fiction writers writing today -- Chimamanda Ngozie Adichie The stories collected in Married Love tend to announced themselves with a crash ... before resolving into quieter reflections, like musical overtures in which strings follow brass. Whether it is in examining the mellowing of a marriage in the title piece, or recounting the progress of a one night stand ("In the Cave"), Hadley writes of ordinary lives with a gracefulness unequalled among her peers * Independent on Sunday * Occasionally - very occasionally - a book feels like a gift, something unexpected, exhilarating, life-enhancing. Tessa Hadley's second collection of short stories is such a book * The Times * One of the most subtle and sublime contemporary writers * Vogue *
