      I'm a fan of Mary Gordon so it pains me to admit that I read about two thirds of this book and put it down. The writing is excellent but the stories were so sad and depressing and the endings souneventful. I think the book should have come with a warning label plus it's January.t the time for a sad/depressing book. Oprah would love it!

      What i love about mary gordon is that she's not afraid of exposition in a story. It was nice for me to read a story that wasn't so spare, like many of the shorts published today. Her work feels full, like a good meal.

      Some good stories but the title story is by far the best!
