"Precise, moving writing—a powerful and compelling collection."—Joseph Hurka, author of Fields of Light
"One of the most compelling stories published [by the Yale Review]. . . . A thoughtful, reflective, sensitive, and graceful work."—Kai Erikson, former editor, The Yale Review
These are stories of unexpected encounters far from home, told with a vivid sense of place. A white man with more wives than money becomes Africa's least-competent thief, two Americans contemplate love's costs and possibilities in Mexico's mountains, a seasick missionary bumps into God on the equator. George Rosen's characters seek, and sometimes find, a reality in which "everywhere, there is something remarkable."
