Abstract:

Thirteen tales of happiness, heartbreak, and desire from the acclaimed author of Home Cooking and Happy All the Time In the title story of this elegant and insightful collection, a book illustrator meets the man of her dreams and struggles to say good-bye to her old self: the perfect houseguest who delighted in the dinner parties of her married friends and always went home alone. & ldquo;A Mythological Subject & rdquo; is the tale of an adulterous affair that arrives unexpected and unwanted, like a natural disaster, but is no mistake. In & ldquo;The Smile Beneath the Smile, & rdquo; Rachel Manheim, an ardent and intelligent young woman, must finally decide what to do about her unavailable lover. & ldquo;A Girl Skating & rdquo; is a delicate and haunting portrait of the unbridgeable divide between life and art, poetry and nature. The warmth, humor, and emotional honesty that characterize Laurie Colwin & rsquo;s writing are on full display in The Lone Pilgrim. Each of these sublime stories is a celebration not just of Colwin & rsquo;s remarkable talent, but of the beautiful mysteries of the human heart. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Laurie Colwin including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author & rsquo;s estate.
