Maeve Brennan left her native Dublin for the USA in 1934 before she was 20, and for most of her life worked for The New Yorker, writing book reviews, fashion notes – and these magnificent stories.

Set mainly in suburban, lower middle-class Dublin between the wars, this collection is divided into three sections: the first set of stories are autobiographical childhood sketches; the second and third sections contain Brennan’s masterworks – a series of tales about two families, the Derdons and the Bagots, and the disappointing, lonely marriages which lie at the heart of each family.
