About the Book

Two friends, the closest of allies, have faced much of their adult lives together—from raising their children collectively to long moments alone once the children are grown—and now they’re facing death together, as Jill comes to terms with the final stages of breast cancer. The two women confront life’s adversities with quiet understanding and deep affection in this unwaveringly beautiful portrait of female friendship.

The short story collection Poached Egg On Toast showcases Itani’s ability to shine a clear light on what it feels like to be an outsider, displaced and disconnected from the world at hand, and how a single, small moment can cause a seismic shift in our emotional landscape. Wickedly funny and unbearably sad, Itani’s stories leave us with a renewed sense of humanity.

HarperCollins brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms. Look for more titles in the HarperCollins short stories collection to build your digital library.
