The dazzling new collection from the Costa Prize-winning author of Day and The Blue Book. She doesn't ever lie to him unless it's for the best. A husband and wife wait for a train as their relationship unspools silently around them. A woman contemplates the idea of her lover dying as she queues in a bank. An almost impossibly uncomfortably lunch culminates in a passionate kiss. In this dazzling collection of stories lies the battlefield of the heart, where characters who have suffered somehow emerge - haltingly, awkwardly - into the astonishment of intimacy.

Recensioner i media

"One of the most consistently dazzling writers of her generation... Kennedy's stories are a little like love: no matter how many times they break your heart, you still come back for more. This collection proves, once again, that it is always worth it." -- Katy Guest * Independent on Sunday * "Kennedy is brilliantly, painfully funny about the fault-lines and disaster zones of the typical relationship" * The Times * "This book celebrates love like a hungry dog celebrates the corpse of a rabbit... Kennedy is, if you like, the Anti-Cartland... Magnificently bleak." -- Jojo Moyes * Independent * "It is Kennedy's portrayal of the difficulty, if not seeming impossibility, of connecting with other people that makes these stories so moving... Kennedy's disjointed, angular style and weird, displaced atmospherics really work" -- Lionel Shriver * Financial Times * "A.L. Kennedy's masterful new collection... Stories appear to roam chaotically, like the mind, but of course they are neat, perfect messes." -- Vicky Allan * Herald * "The book is filled with lyrical beauty, wry humour and acute observation, imbued by a willingness to dig deep and give voice to the reader's rawest emotions. All the Rage is an outstanding collection, full of stories to be savoured." -- Ally Nichol * List * "[Kennedy] is the god of her own godless world. Her prose moves in more mysterious ways than mere comprehension will allow." -- Tom Adair * Scotland on Sunday * "A satisfying diversity of experience and insight." -- James Purdon * Literary Review * "Full of moments of risk, which Kennedy's characters handle self-consciously and with care... She strings lyrical sentences together effortlessly." -- Sheena Joughin * Times Literary Supplement * "Beautifully crafted... It would be impossible not to admire these stories." -- Cressida Connolly * Spectator *
