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.
