And I have just bought it as keep on reading about what an amazing writer she is.

It's a collection of short stories.

Here's a review:

"This book is a spectacular literary revelation. "Why isn't Edith Pearlman famous?" asks Ann Patchett in her introduction to it. As you read its 34 often superlative short stories, that question rings through your mind, too. That Pearlman's name will cause blank stares in Britain isn't surprising: never published here before, she makes her UK debut with Binocular Vision at the age of 76. Her lack of recognition in her native America, though, where she has been publishing fiction in magazines for more than 40 years, is astonishing. Three earlier collections of stories Vaquita (1996), Love Among the Greats (2002) and How to Fall (2005) had little impact. Only when this book was published there in 2011 did wide acclaim start to come her way.' --Peter Kemp, The Sunday Times"
