Inhaltsangabe: Winner of The Flannery O'Connor Award, this critically acclaimed debut collection features ten stories set in the plains of the Midwest and the honky-tonks of the South. This is a world where happiness is half heartache, dreams dwindle, and infidelity becomes just another way to extend the family. Characters search in vain for "the one incident you can zero down to as the source of trouble, and everything bad that happens after if happens because of it." Witty and sly, exciting and powerful, these are stories about people who understand their own complicity belatedly, but never too late. Illuminated in these affecting, self-revealing stories is the measure of hope and healing that lies in every heart and coupling, no matter the trespass.
Klappentext: "Debra Monroe is a fierce writer. She fills a world with men and women in extremes, living in the mouth of trouble, who nevertheless try to keep faith--faith in best possible outcomes. She writes dialogue as if stitching samplers for our rawest truths, at once mean and exalted. The voices in these stories are original and frank, untutored angels amazed that there is such a thing as doom. This is a feisty debut, and I read it eager to see if souls in Monroe's world would live long enough to get a little tenderness for themselves." --Ron Carlson
