Yesterday's Weather

Man Booker winner Anne Enright s story collection "Yesterday s Weather" is a series of moving glimpses into the lives of ordinary men and women struggling with the bonds of love, family, and community in an increasingly disconnected world. It exhibits the arresting images and subversive wit that mark Enright as one of the most thrillingly gifted writers of our time."Yesterday s Weather" shows us a rapidly changing Ireland, a land of family and tradition, but also, increasingly, of organic radicchio, cruise-ship vacations, and casual betrayals. An artisan farmer seethes at the patronage of a former Catholic-school classmate, now a successful restaurateur; a bride cuckolds her rich husband with an old college friend&#8212a madman who refuses his pills, disappears for weeks on end, and plays the piano like a dream. Still more startling than loss or deception are the ways in which people respond: a wife raging at her husband s infidelity must weigh the real stakes after his affair takes a tragic turn; confronted with a similar situation, a woman decides to cheat with, rather than against, her man. Sharp, tender, never predictable, their sum is a vibrant tapestry of people struggling to find contentment with one another&#8212and with themselves."

Acclaim for the internationally bestselling The Gathering: "Such incredible sentences . . . it's unlikely you'll find a more precisely rendered depiction of the hypocrisy, minor hysterics, and comforting ritual of an Irish wake."-- "Globe and Mail" "Enright is a daring writer -- witty, original and inventive. . . . Utterly compelling." -- "Daily Mail" "Reckless intelligence, savage humor, slow revelation, no consolation: Anne Enright's fiction is jet dark -- but how it glitters." -- "New York Times Book Review" "A lyrical meditation on memory and connectedness . . . dreamy . . . wise. . . . Like Ali Smith, Enright is an original." -- "Kirkus Reviews" (starred review)
