Abstract:

"From the multi-talented and versatile Gloria Vanderbilt comes an all-new series of stories that are touching, surprising, enigmatic, and told in a beautifully calibrated prose--stories that seize upon a situation, a brief moment that is resonant with the random static of everyday disaster--stories in which to merely step into a room is to find that everything in your life has been inexplicably reversed--stories in which love may be ardent but defeat is deadpan, a stillness in the afternoon."--Page [4] of jacket.
