“Property” by Lionel Shriver

5 stars

Property consists of two novellas interspersed with 10 short stories. The stories are realistic, well-crafted, often ironic, and sometimes comical — with characters in the urban landscape of the United Kingdom and the United States. Most of the stories are concerned with home ownership in one form or another, and with the emotions and entanglements that go with it. It is beautifully written and a pleasure to read, with modern characters, but reminiscent of O. Henry.
