Small is the story of Dickie Lyttlehampton, a man with a certain shortcoming. The book begins with his discovery of this fact at the cruel hands of Katherine and continues the story through his various loves and lovers. His marriage is strong, but there is something missing...and Dickie must make an agonising decision in order to make his wife truly happy. I took a deep breath. "That thing we agreed to never talk about." "Um," Sophie said, extremely carefully. "I think we are going to have to talk about it." "Um," Sophie repeated, even more carefully. Always sexy, often funny, sometimes deeply moving, Small is a tale of love and lust, loss and longing, and is both heartwarming and heartbreaking.
