Summary
  • These fifteen exquisitely honed stories reveal Hempel at her most compassionate and spirited, as she introduces characters, lonely and adrift, 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. Quietly dazzling, these stories are replete with moments of revelation and transcendence
  • 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
