Filled with the kind of witty, discerning observations that have brought Steve Martin incredible critical success, this story of modern day love and romance is a work of disarming tenderness.

A bestselling novella about the love life of a shopgirl who
works at the Neiman Marcus glove counter, written by one of
our country's most acclaimed and beloved entertainers.
Mirabelle, the shopgirl of the title, is a young woman,
beautiful in a wallflowerish kind of way. Slightly lost,
slightly off-kilter, 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. Beautifully written, this novella reveals
a different side of Martin, one that is unexpectedly
perceptive about relationships and profoundly wise when it
comes to the workings of the human heart.
