"It's been over a decade since author Russell Banks has released a collection of short stories, and while some of the tales in this new collection have been published elsewhere, six are seeing the light of day for the first time. Known for incisive yet compassionate portraits of contemporary American life, Banks continues to mine both the struggle for the American dream and the bonds we all form - whether with family members or strangers - for his traditional, character-driven narratives. These stories might not have happy endings, but they are "honest, probing and moving" (Kirkus Reviews)."
