This is a small volume of short observational pieces in which Brett muses on the perils of living in New York, being American, her own peccadilloes and those of other people. Brett is hugely insightful and pointedly humorous. Her most remarkable achievement is writing with prose that is duplicitously simple. Some pieces are not as acute or as well-structured as others but I wonder if I might be missing some subtle verbal nudge.

This volume is my introduction to Lily Brett but I'll be looking out for more of her work.
