When the austere and moving title story of this collection appeared in "The New Yorker" in 1993, it inspired two memorable film adaptations, and John Updike selected it for inclusion in "The Best American Short Stories of the Century." In these ten stories, Alice Elliott Dark visits the fictional town of Wynnemoor and its residents, present and past, with skill, compassion, and wit. By turns funny, sad, and disturbing, these are stories of remarkable power.

Industry Reviews

Elle Wise, funny, and wrenching, Dark's stories illuminate the hidden corners of her complex characters' lives, catching them in the painfully comic acts of being themselves. Anne Stephenson USA Today Dark...writes with great sympathy for the complexity of ordinary lives. [H]er stories are like the proverbial iceberg: We look at the tip but are compelled to think about all that's hidden below. Joyce Carol Oates The New York Review of Books Beautifully composed...each story exudes the gravitas of a radically distilled novel. Jennie Yabroff San Francisco Chronicle [Dark] can do a certain kind of writing about a certain kind of love, and break her reader's heart without seeming to try.
