Abstract:

The fifteen stories in this book introduce readers to characters, lonely and adrift, who are searching for connection. In "A Full-Service Shelter," a volunteer at a dog shelter tirelessly, devotedly cares for dogs on a list to be euthanized. In "Greed," a spurned wife examines her husband's affair with a glamorous, older married woman. And in "Cloudland," the longest story in the collection, a woman reckons with the choice she made as a teenager to give up her newborn infant.--adapted from jacket. Hempel's collection of exquisitely honed stories introduces characters, lonely and adrift, searching for connection. These stories are replete with moments of revelation and transcendence and with Hempel's singular, startling, inimitable sentences. -- adapted from jacket.
