A collection of short stories that includes the much-anthologized “Hydrography,” a haunting narrative about a young couple who lose their infant child, and “The Spoiler,” about a father who has lost his first son and becomes overly protective of his second.

“Excellent stories, written with poise, accomplishment, and a penetrating understanding of the secret things that make us most deeply uncomfortable, perhaps most human.”

Publishers Weekly

“It’s an uncommon pleasure to read an author who knows how to resolve pain without bitterness yet still has a jeweler’s eye for life’s tricky facets and buried fissures.”
