"Tallent's prose style is precise, elegant, cool, but grounded in compassion that makes this a standout collection, by a writer who has definitely come into her own." —Publishers Weekly

 

A writer whose special talent is the complex geometry between men and women, gives the reader four stories, from a five-year-old girl troubled by the birth of a sibling to a teenaged girl accepting a gift from her married boyfriend.
