These ten stories - poignant, perceptive, sometimes sad, and frequently funny - display a multiplicity of London life glimpsed from buses, trains and the occasional taxi. The Thames is a diamond-dusted ribbon seen from an airplane coming into Heathrow; also from behind buggyloads of babies, and from suburban backyards with their barbecues, and dawn revelations.
Meanwhile, Dorrie, heroine of the title story, and full-time mother of three, struggles to preserve some shred of her self-respect and inner life, while bolstering family values both at home in London, and in the final story of the collection, on holiday in Cornwall.
