"Bingham writes with an austere and unerring knowledge of what it is to be human and—transgressive."—Paula Fox
"These are marvelous stories of experience and have the ripeness of wry, hard-won wisdom."—Phillip Lopate
"Bingham has the eye to see where a story lives, the heart to understand it, and the voice—and craft—to tell it."—Robin Morgan In her wise and sexy new collection, Sallie Bingham examines modern-day "transgressions" in affairs of the heart. She offers up a ménage à trois, an older woman’s affair with a student, a painter who uses his age as an excuse to behave indecorously. But the reader quickly discovers the real transgressions are those of the self against the self.
