In each of these tales, master storyteller Richard Ford is drawn to the themes of intimacy, love, and their failures. An illicit visit to the Grand Canyon reveals a vastness even more profound; an exacting career woman celebrates Christmas with her adamantly post-nuclear family; a couple weekending in Maine try to recapture the ardour that has disappeared, both gradually and suddenly, from their lives; on a spring evening's drive, a young wife confesses to her husband the affair she had with the host of the dinner party they're about to join.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Scorching ... These stories are wry, stark, and heartbreaking - and, with the quiet moral urgency at their core, make up Ford's most stinging collection to date' Elle 'Elegant, pristine, precise ... these stories are indisputable proof that Ford is a contemporary master of the short story' Esquire 'Encompasses the comedy and pathos and wit of our dislocated times and reminds us how powerful short stories can be' Los Angeles Times 'One of the country's best writers ... No one looks harder at contemporary American life, sees more, or expresses it with such hushed, deliberate care' San Francisco Chronicle
