Abstract:

Experimenting with the narrative structure by crafting together snapshots, this short story collection touches upon topics as diverse as anorexia, cleaning the oven, the terror of losing a child, exile, infidelity, and desire. Using panache and hypnotic honesty, it traverses the terrain of loss and fear, yet retains elements of quirky humor and sly surprise. Told from the perspectives of a policewoman, an art teacher, an athlete, a bassoonist, a lover, and a mother, these stories are erotic, edgy, and wise.
