There are very modern stories of international adoption: from China, Chile, Thailand, Russia and Mali. And also stories about the outdated morality of 1950s and 1960s, when many young women were forced to give up their children. There is humour and heartbreak, profundity and slapstick.

Publication date 07 Jul 2005. Publisher GRANTA BOOKS.
