In this sparkling collection of nineteen stories, the bestselling author of Slammerkin returns to contemporary affairs, dramatizing the private dilemmas that result from some of our most public controversies. A man finds God and finally wants to father a child-only his wife is now forty-two years old. A coach's son discovers his sexuality on the football field. A roommate's bizarre secret awakens a repressed young woman. With characters old, young, straight, gay, and simply confused, Emma Donoghue dazzles with her range and her ability to touch lightly but dive deeply into the human condition.
