Product description

Review

The book I most often give as a gift to cheer people up (Hilary Mantel Guardian)

A delicious book. Funny and happy, it's like the breath of youth again (Jane Gardam)

This wry debut...focuses on the loneliness and ennui of three department store employees. These women, identically attired in black dresses that serve as uniforms, work in the Ladies' Frocks Department at Goode's, a store in Sydney, Australia. Each suffers from long-standing unhappiness revolving one way or another around the opposite sex...During the frenzied Christmas shopping season, each saleswoman indirectly confronts her problem and attains contentment (Publishers Weekly)

Review

"A highly sophisticated work, full of funny, sharp and subtle observations...a small masterpiece." (The Sunday Times)

"A little gem...shot through with old-fashioned innocence and sly humour." (Vogue)

"Seductive, hilarious, brilliantly observed, this novel shimmers with wit and tenderness." (Helen Garner)
