Five primary characters of Opening Arteries undergo varying blood ruptures. Adele Brower works as a marketing agent in Albuquerque, N.M. and lives with her fiancÚ, Reed Stegner. With his tapestries, his motorcycle, and his indifference to indifference to capitalism, Reed finds peace. When Adele suffers a head injury, however, Reed must hearken to social and financial rules he had earlier smirked. Across the country in Washington, D.C. is Kappy Lamont, Adele's sister, who writes short stories about mothering children when she is not actually enacting them. She is married to Jay, a corporate lawyer, who dwells on syndication, fly fishing, and himself, not necessarily in that order. In addition to Adele's trauma, they face the fury of marital discord.
