Book Review - Bad Dreams and Other Stories by Tessa Hadley

Very interesting short stories and writing.  Tessa Hadley, with Bad Dreams and Other Stories, gives us layers of life. 

Quarrels over inheritance. A Housekeeper and secrets found. A child awake in the dark. 

cover blurb - Small acts  have large consequences, some that can reverberate across decades...

The real  things  that  happen to people, the accidents that befall them, are every bit as mysterious as their longings and dreams. 

Good, tight writing  all around.
