Abstract:

A collection of nine stories navigates the fragile space between love and loneliness. In "Property", a young scholar, grieving the sudden death of his wife, decides to refurbish the Maine rental house they were to share together by removing the landlord's possessions. In "Peter Elroy," the household of a successful filmaker is visited years later by his famous first subject, whose trust he betrayed. In "The Lost & Found Department of Great Boston," the manager of a grocery store becomes fixated on the famous case of a missing local woman, and on the fate of the teenage son she left behind. And in the title story, a family makes a decision to flee to Paris for a summer, only to find their lives altered in an unimaginable way by their teenage daughter's risky behavior. -- From book jacket.
