These highly acclaimed stories are fierce and surprising. A bus ride in Nepal; a wedding on the shore of Quidi Vidi Lake; a husband's memory of an early piercing love affair; a mother and her infant boy. Always the telling gesture, these stories handcuff the truth; they offer the reasons to leave and the reasons to stay. They demand: open.
