The author of Monkeys and Evening focuses her observant eye and lyrical voice on the delicate emotional negotiations of young New Yorkers. As in a series of deceptively simple watercolors, these stories uncover small moments that yield larger truths--about the ways in which women and men come together and come apart again, about the disappointments and hopes of lovers who know what they want but don't always know how to keep. A deeply poignant meditation on the nature of desire and loss.

"Susan Minot has a laser instinct for the clinching detail and the giveaway phrase.... A writer to watch."--Time

"A superbly organized, poignant and profound collection."--The New York Times Book Review
