Description - I Wish Someone Were Waiting for Me Somewhere by Anna Gavalda

Following the publication of Anna Gavalda's international bestseller, Hunting and Gathering, this book introduces us to Anna Gavalda's witty and dazzling collection of stories, I Wish Someone Were Waiting For Me Somewhere, together with her heartbreaking and poignant novella, Someone I Loved - both published in the UK for the first time. I Wish Someone Were Waiting For Me Somewhere explores how a life can be changed irrevocably in just one fateful moment. A pregnant mother's plans for the future unravel at the hospital; a travelling salesman learns the consequences of an almost-missed exit on the motorway in the newspaper the next morning; while a perfect date is spoilt by a single act of thoughtlessness. In those crucial moments Gavalda demonstrates her almost magical skill in conveying love, lust, longing, and loneliness. Someone I Loved is a hauntingly intimate look at the intolerably painful, yet sometimes valuable consequences that adultery can have on a marriage and the individuals involved. A simple tale, yet long in substance, Someone I Loved ends like most great love affairs, forever leaving you wanting just one more moment.
