Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Kate Wheeler's stories feature peripatetic Americans who seek love or enlightenment - or both - in far-flung corners of the globe. A startling mixture of gentle irony, mischievous humor, and unexpected danger marks the paths of all these characters as they follow their circuitous routes toward happiness. As THE NEW YORK TIMES said, "Wheeler has a capacity for compressing the insights of cross-cultural dislocation into deliciously memorable epiphanies."

Synopsis:

Many of the stories in Wheeler's debut collection feature Americans in alien cultures, seeking love or spiritual enlightenment--often both. Underlying these remarkable tales is an unerring belief in the power of love, both human and divine--a prize that remains just out of reach.
