Nine stories...skillfully track time's toll on the ability to live and love fully. -- Publishers Weekly. "With A GARDEN AMID FIRES Swan claims new mastery of the short story. A wide variety of settings adds brilliance to important thems: the irresistible powers of memory, the confusions of exile, genuineness and falsity in art, the integrity of loneliness...Uncannily good." -- Fred Chappell.

From Publishers Weekly:

Nine stories by poet and fiction writer Swan (On the Edge of the Desert) skillfully track time's toll on the ability to live and love fully. The title story, appearing last, is set at a quiet camp on a lake owned by an aging divorcee; she's surprised to find her loneliness and growing feeling of being diminished by time allayed by a young family of new neighbors. "Women Who Don't Tell War Stories" brings together two WWII veterans and their wives after 50 years, while old Uncle Lazarus returns from the fog of his own death in order finally to enjoy life for the first time. "Exiles," set amid a colony of politically active expatriates in Spain, underscores how the introduction of love opens a pleasing prospect on the present for a widow. There's an elegiac quality to these well-crafted tales. (Mar.)
