Abstract:

"In his orchestral and moving new book, [the author]...chronicles people whose lives are at inflection points. In forty-four compressed gems, he grips us with a series of defining moments. Whether it's a first date that turns into a late-night road trip to a s?ance in an abandoned airplane hangar, or a family's memories of the painful mystery surrounding a forgotten uncle's demise, [the author] reveals how our fleeting decisions between kindness and abandonment chase us across time. These stories are anchored by a poignant novella that delivers not only the joys and travails of a forty-year marriage, but an entire era in a working-class New England city."--Provided by publisher.
