Last Writes
jjares avatar reviewed on + 2492 more book reviews

This is a wildly clever collection of 22 short stories from the hand of witty, devious, and savvy Catherine Aird. Of course, there are some Sloan and Crosby stories but I want to direct you to one particular favorite of mine: 'The Hard Lesson.' I laughed so hard. A school is short of staff and has to send an unmarried prune of a teacher into the sex education class full of 'with it' students. It is priceless.

I save these to read just before going to sleep, partly because I've read everything else this author has written multiple times. The author has a wonderfully wry wit. I have a smile on my face as I fall to sleep.
