About this title


Fifteen stories focus on men and women facing disillusionment, failure, and the disappointments of modern life

From Publishers Weekly:

These short stories are linked by a common tone that is understated, knowing, wistful, but not always without hope. In the briefest and best story, "BurningIssues," a recently widowed woman remembers the moment when Mars came close to the Earth, which happened at the same time she felt closest to herhusband. PW recommended this collection's "fine writing and emotional resonance."
