A Day in the Life of a Smiling Woman: Complete Short Stories

'“A writer of acid wit, keen plots, and psychological acuity . . . Electrifyingly precise and darkly funny . . . Stories as piercing as they are dazzling.” —Booklist, starred review   “Even those who have never dabbled in Drabble will enjoy this. . . . With her snappy pacing and signature sense of irony, Drabble gives us a sense of the various feminist growing pains progressive women have experienced over the past 50 years, and articulates some of the frustrations and triumphs we’re still experiencing today.” —Bust   “These sharp and poignant stories will have broad appeal but will be especially nostalgic for readers who came of age in the heady dawn of feminism and who cut their literary teeth on the likes of Doris Lessing, Margaret Atwood, and Drabble herself.” —Library Journal  Includes an introduction by José Fernández  '
