Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"I admire At Home Anywhere for its complex characters revealed layer by layer, the story arcs moving naturally toward satisfying conclusions that still manage to surprise, the consistently mature narrative voice, and the lovely but unobtrusive turns of phrase."—Leif Enger

This collection, a Many Voices Project winner, dazzles quietly, like the work of Alice Munro or Carol Shields, by drawing readers into the lives of characters trapped by unemployment, cultural disorientation, and family conflict. Like high-wire performers, they teeter precariously and vividly on the brink of disaster, but get their chance to survive, if they can just face reality.

Synopsis:

In this prize-winning collection of stories, people respond to large historical events and to forces beyond their individual control.
