Product Description

Lily King is one of our great literary treasuresLily King writes with a great generosity of spiritBy the award-winning, New York Times bestselling author of Writers & Lovers, Lily King‰۪s first-ever collection of exceptional and innovative short stories.

'Moved me, inspired me, thrilled me. It filled up every chamber of my heart. I loved this book' - Ann Patchett

Writers & Lovers
established Lily King as one of our most beloved authors of contemporary fiction. Now, for the first time ever, King collects ten of her finest short stories, opening fresh realms of discovery for avid and new readers alike.


Told in the intimate voices of unique and endearing characters of all ages, these tales explore desire and heartache, loss and discovery, moments of jolting violence and the inexorable tug toward love at all costs. A bookseller‰۪s unspoken love for his employee rises to the surface, a neglected teenage boy finds much-needed nurturing from an unlikely pair of college students hired to housesit, a girl‰۪s loss of innocence at the hands of her employer‰۪s son becomes a catalyst for strength and confidence, and a proud nonagenarian rages helplessly in his granddaughter‰۪s hospital room. Romantic, hopeful, brutally raw, and unsparingly honest, some even slipping into the surreal, these stories are, above all, about King‰۪s enduring subject of love.

Lily King's literary mastery, her spare and stunning prose, and her gift for creating lasting and treasured characters is on full display in this curated selection of short fiction. Five Tuesdays in Winter showcases an exhilarating new form for this extraordinarily gifted author writing at the height of her career.
