"Thompson's unpretentious clarity pays off most rewardingly in stories that expose their characters gradually to the unforeseen consequences of their actions....Honest, competent work from a good writer..."
"[A] quietly devastating book, where characters' emotional needs are rarely stated and are never met without a sizable measure of concession and loss....Thompson is to be commended for creating profoundly bruised characters without a trace of condescension or pity, yet being brave enough to leave them struggling once their stories are told."
"[A] strong, candid, and insightful collection."
From the Publisher
Annotation In her third collection of short stories, Jean Thompson sketches out episodes in the lives of people who just fall short of happiness. In one story, a man whose wife has died sells his house to a happy young couple, but the house contains so much of the widower's misery that the new residents find themselves mourning their own lives. Other stories grow out of the sadnesses of junkies, Vietnam veterans, and cops on the night beat. This book named a New York Times Notable Book in 1999.
