The author of the highly acclaimed novels "Jernigan" and "Preston Falls" offers up a mordantly funny collection of short stories about the bargains we make with ourselves to continue the high-wire act of living meaningful lives in late 20th century America.
From the Publisher:
A remarkable debut collection of short fiction by the critically acclaimed author of Jernigan and Preston Falls includes the title story, "Star Baby," "The Crazy Thought," and "The Mail Lady," in which a stroke victim struggles to find a balance between his still-vital mind and a broken body. Reprint. 17,500 first printing.

Praise

Washington Post Book World
"Each of the stories in this collection turns on the presence, more often the absence, and sometimes just the possibility, of a disinterested love; Gates writes of a generation that tries to act as if such a love were at least possible, but most of whom are too selfish, weak or fearful to give and receive it." - James Hynes 08/08/1999
