Focusing on the dilemmas of contemporary women and issues of responsibility and choice, Clare Boylan's writing has become a much-loved voice of contemporary fiction. Here, published in a single volume for the first time, are all three of her collections: A NAIL ON THE HEAD, CONCERNING VIRGINS and THAT BAD WOMAN. The stories are bewitching as they unsettle, confirming Clare Boylan's ability to subvert our reactions with irony as subtle and deft as a surgeon's blade.
