Synopsis: For all the New York chic which surrounds them, the situations and dilemmas of Susan Minot's women could hardly be more classical. The women know they are going to lose and several of them try to guard themselves against attachment, to stay free, but their hearts are not in it. They know there is not much they can so about it, once a look, a touch, a night out changes everything. It's a bleak situation, but talking about it doesn't appear to help, and writing about it doesn't either, beyond a certain point, soon reached. the terseness of these laconic tales has its own telling decorum' LONDON REVIEW OF BOOKS.
From the Inside Flap: The author of Monkeys and Evening focuses her observant eye and lyrical voice on the delicate emotional negotiations of young New Yorkers. As in a series of deceptively simple watercolors, these stories uncover small moments that yield larger truths--about the ways in which women and men come together and come apart again, about the disappointments and hopes of lovers who know what they want but don't always know how to keep. A deeply poignant meditation on the nature of desire and loss.
