9780020455400: Time With Children
From Library Journal:

Admirers of Tallent's novel Museum Pieces ( LJ 5/1/85) will recognize the western feel of many of her settings, her serious contemplation of women's strengths and isolation, marriages and infidelities, spite and forgiveness. Among stories linked by treatment of the same characters, three concern an Anglo couple renovating a rural house, cut off from their Spanish neighbors. In another set of stories, a second wife from a large Nicaraguan family realizes the complexity of her husband's capacity for unfaithfulness in her subtle rivalry with his ex-wife. The beauty of Tallent's prose focuses "the clarifying light of heartache" on emotional dilemma and dislocated lives. Mary Soete, San Diego P.L, Cal.

From Publishers Weekly:

"Tallent's prose styleprecise, elegant, cool, but grounded in compassionmakes this a standout collection, by a writer who has definitely come into her own," commented PW of these "expertly crafted and exquisitely observed" interrelated tales that, curiously, are arranged non-sequentially.
