Description: One of our country's most acclaimed and beloved entertainers, Steve Martin is recognized as a "gorgeous writer capable of being at once melancholy and tart, achingly innocent and astonishingly ironic" (Elle). Beautifully written, this novella reveals a different side of Martin, one that is unexpectedly perceptive about relationships and life and wise when it comes to the inner workings of the human heart.

Mirabelle is a young woman, beautiful in a wallflower-ish kind of way, who works behind the glove counter at Neiman Marcus, "selling things that nobody buys anymore. . ". Slightly lost, very shy, Mirabelle charms because of all that she is not: Not glamorous, not aggressive, not self-aggrandizing. Still, there is something about her that is irresistible.

Mirabelle captures the attention of Ray Porter, a wealthy, much older businessman. As they tentatively embark on a relationship, they both struggle to decipher the language of love -- with consequences that are both comic and heartbreaking. Filled with the kind of witty, discerning observations that have brought Steve Martin critical success, Shopgirl is a work of disarming tenderness.
