Summary

From "one of the quiet giants in the world of American fiction" (Los Angeles Times), comes this inventive collection of short fiction about intimacy and despair. In "The Family" one horrifying afternoon in the park is succinctly described in 47 human actions. "Wife in One Country" depicts the aftermath of a failed marriage. And in "Glenn Gould," a former pianist and new mother tries to justify her addiction to "The Mary Tyler Moore Show." In each of her stories, Davis explores the difficulties of personal relationships and the limits of language with great intelligence and empathy.
