But it's also a pure encapsulation of her politics: at heart it's a book of frustration about the social inequalities and environmental catastrophes of late capitalism, and how these play out in our intimate lives, shading our sexual, personal or familial relations. It was like this itch that I wanted to scratch but when I started scratching it I was ‘oh, shit, oh no, ha ha, this is awful’.

These are the stories where Long fully explores the characters' world and teases its complexities out, giving the protagonist and the reader moments of epiphany. About ten years ago I spoke to Canongate and said I would love to do this and they were so supportive but it took me another three years before I actually started. My favourite was 2021, 2021 but thinking back and writing this review three weeks later I can’t really remember exactly, all I know is it follows the survivor of an abusive relationship and I believe she comes into contact with her ex (the abuser) and how it was quite tense.A series of narrators entertain us with blast from the past exes, friends who are a bit rubbish, dysfunctional relationships, teenagers who believe they are witches and an admin/surveillance job that has the reader guessing if we’ve moved into a parallel universe.

I like it so much better than when she found improv, and talked to everyone about how life was also improv, and kept discussing the details and rules of specific improv games to me until I felt like a coward for not shouting that I do not and will not ever give a f*** about improv”.Each story is from the point of view of a character whose distinct flaws or insecurities are explored through the interactions with other characters and their own internal monologue. This is an excellent collection of stories, a selection that packs a powerful punch in bitesize chunks.
