Summary
Long admired for her "tough-minded, original, and fully felt" short stories ("The New York Times Book Review"), Hempel takes her art to new heights in her first remarkable novella--as well as in her latest collection of stories that comment on life's ironies with decidedly offbeat intelligence
Summary
A collection of stories portrays a variety of characters whose vision is slightly skewed and whose inner logic keeps leading them to make bad decisions, as they become obsessed and irrational about the places they call home
