Praise

“Witty, wise and stirring. . . . Simpson’s stories sing.”—Los Angeles Times Book Review “Helen Simpson is mordantly funny and unafraid of life’s big issues, such as love, aging, and war.” —The Atlantic “Trenchant yet tender. . . .There is a shrewd intelligence at play in these stories and a hip, articulate voice that snaps and crackles with bursts of quirky energy.” —The Boston Globe“Dark and artfully funny.” —Vanity Fair “Proof that the most domestic setting can lend itself to ferocious satire, fantasy and terrifyingly recognizable portraits of people’s worst moments. There’s no one as sharp, or as funny, as Simpson on motherhood’s emotional costs and its pleasures. In the Driver’s Seat is not to be missed.” —Newsday “This wicked little book dares you to laugh at dirty, serious things.” —St. Petersburg Times “Helen Simpson’s short stories read like cautionary tales about the ravages of parenthood, harrowing dispatches from the front lines of middle-class family life. . . . Wonderful.” —The New York Times Book Review
