Publisher Comments:

In this stunning collection of stories, bestselling author Ursula Hegi focuses on the problems of love — familial, parental, conjugal, and emergent. With compassion and her "unfailing immediacy of language," she raises the struggles of her characters to a plane of recognition that enables them to transcend despair.
