Overview: 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.
