From the Publisher:

Ann Beattie is a writer of enormous compassion and honesty. Beattie expertly draws contemporary domestic life and evokes the pain and confusion of modern relationships. Her characters are wonderfully authentic, her detailing of everyday life photographically true.

Beattie's stories offer starkly honest, often bittersweet glimpses of life -- women nursing broken hearts, men looking for love, married couples struggling to stay married, having affairs, leaving or wanting to leave. Disillusionment abounds. Love is often frustrated, unrequited, or absent. But Beattie moves gently among her characters, gracefully revealing their failings, their troubles, and ultimately their ability to endure. Her unsentimental voice propels these remarkable stories forward, and her keen insight affords us a rare glimpse into the human heart.

About the Author:

Ann Beattie won the Pen/Malamud Award for Excellence in Short Fiction in 2000. She is the author of six previous collections of stories and seven novels, including, most recently, The Doctor's House. A member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, she divides her time among Maine, Florida, and Virginia.

Mails from NYC usually within 12 hours. ; 8 x 5.2 x 0.7 inches; 207 pages; \nFrom Publishers Weekly In Beattie's fourth short story collection, works that seemed aimless and unimpressive upon original publication are given an enriching context while better tales reaffirm the author's abilities. PW stated that the collection "transcends the purposeful absence of continuity and plot. " Copyright 1987 Reed. From Library Journal Beattie's stories are all "middle, " without beginnings or ends: she gives us glimpses of her characters as they gain insight through a random event or are "surprised into remembering" something. A moment of acceptance is crystallized in "In the White Night, " about a couple whose child has died. In "Summer People, " a chance encounter with a stranger leads a man to understand that he isn't connecting with his wife. Marriage and infidelity are recurring themes. In "Times, " a woman recalls her husband's confession of an affair. A realtor in "Janus" places a beautiful bowl, a gift from her departed lover, in each house she shows. Skillful and affecting contemporary stories, 12 of which have appeared in magazines, and three published here for the first time. Janet Wiehe, P. L. Of Cincinnati & Hamilton Cty. Copyright 1986 Reed.
