"This stellar collection of novellas, written by one of the most beloved writers in America, provides profound insight into the human condition. A 60-year-old art history academic embarks on an unexpected journey of rediscovery; a dog catcher goes on the road looking for love, and a young Midwestern farm boy has a love of water which leads to unforeseen consequences."
