A collection of short stories centered on the complications of love and the disorientation of grief. "Chehak's prose offers an impressive variety of styles, ranging from long, cascading sentences to linguistic parsimony, from short snapshots to longer, more plot-driven narratives. She has a talent for packing a lifetime of retrospection into one or two sentences. Most of the pieces in this book are driven by character, and even the unnamed figures in them are powerfully drawn, if enigmatic. The author also sensitively juxtaposes personal anxiety with its global iteration. A poignant assortment of stylistically daring stories." — Kirkus Reviews
