Description:

In his first book, one of the most acclaimed and original story collections of the last decade, Peter Orner explores the brief but far-reaching occasions that haunt us. The discovery of a murder, the destruction of a town's historical City Hall building, and the recollection of a cruel wartime decision are equally affecting in Orner's vivid scenarios. The first half of the book concerns the lives of unrelated strangers across the American landscape, and the second introduces two Jewish families, one on the East Coast, the other in the Midwest. Yet Orner's real territory is memory, and all of his wide-ranging pieces--funny or sorrowful, urban or rural, traditional or innovative--are welcome additions to the art of the story.
