Asking for Love: Stories

'“Asking for Love delighted me no end. I think ‘King of the Sky’ is one of the most masterful, achieved stories I’ve read in a long time.” —Alice Munro   “Asking for Love is marked by Roxana Robinson’s characteristic mix of elegance and tenderness.” —Mary Gordon   “Short stories that expose the desperation under the skin of seemingly invulnerable upper-class, blue-eyed WASPs. Robinson writes like an angel.” —Cosmopolitan   “Robinson reveals her characters through a striking combination of nuance, empathy and wit.” —Publishers Weekly   “Robinson captures the world of Maine summer houses, Scottish shooting trips, and velvet-collared Chesterfield coats with acuity and marvelously sharp, ironic prose. . . . Here is a writer who thoroughly knows her bearings. Large truths served up with small tea sandwiches—delicious stories.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review  '
