Synopsis:
Stories deal with a mother caring for her adult son as he is dying from AIDS, a man tempted to cheat on his pregnant wife, the confused memories of an Alzheimer's patient, and a woman leading an unfulfilled life in a safe marriage.

Review:
"Earnest as these stories are, they lack fire, humor, wisdom, life. In 10 tableaux, Dark hopes to sculpt a living theater of Wynemoor populated by pulsating, passionate humans. Instead, she has created little more than 10 Flags Over New Jersey, a two-dimensional theme park and a wax museum."

Jonathan Levi, Los Angeles Times Book Review, 01/02/2000

Review:
"[Of the 10 stories here,] 'In the Gloaming' is easily her best story. And even if it's only sentimental stuff (one of the century's best tearjerkers), a story that causes you to cry reminds you of the magic that makes some people devote their lives to literature. A stranger puts words together in a particular order; years later, on another continent perhaps, certainly in another context, you scan the page and here come the tears, damp tribute to a mysterious power."

Adam Begley, New York Observer, 01/10/2000
