Themes about the relationship between women and animals dominate this excellent short story collection. Several of the stories are brilliant and have been featured in "best short story" anthologies.

I want to mother the world, I thought. I have so much love.
Then—I have no business being a mother. I am a selfish woman.
Then—I can do this. Millions of women have been mothers.
Then—I feel very alone. I do not know what I'm capable of.
