About this title

From Publishers Weekly:

In 10 astute, mildly zany and often wickedly funny stories, Kirshenbaum ( Short Subjects ) peers at a multifaceted assortment of modern relationships. A wife who decides to organize her life by making lists of "Things to Do" discovers she married not for love, but for a good health plan. If you are a woman with a past, there is no point to an attachment with a man who thinks only of the future, according to "Past Perfect." Reality may encompass a gray Honda Civic in suburban Connecticut, but to the narrator of "Wheels," true love is a sleek, cobalt-blue Alfa Romeo on the open road. "Pravda" describes two women, friends of many years, who spend a g fall afternoon outdoors on a bench discussing Marxism, men and amorality. An American couple who haveg come to Romania in search of romance to save their marriage find only "Travail"; the highlight of their vacation is the sight of three stuffed goats in pink tutus. Perhaps all these disenchanted characters would agree with the heroine of "Red Fever," who claims that love is like another troublesome substance: "You scrape and scrape at the bottom of your shoe but you never quite get it off." Some pieces appeared previously in the New England Review/Bread Loaf Quarterly and other publications.
