Description


From a captivating new author come twelve piercing stories in which young women negotiate friendship and marriage, art and commerce, and the possibility their lives might not work out as planned. After the house of the young couple in "A Cane, an Anchor" goes up in flames, they're unsure of what they lost in the fire and what they'd lost long before it. "The Living" asks, how would you arrange your life if you had only six months left? In "Youse," two teenage girls are the targets of an attempted kidnapping. A trio of linked stories--including the title track--follows Meg and Dax, a curator and a butcher who married impulsively, from their eerie honeymoon in rural Wales through Meg's identity crisis when the museum where she works is destroyed, to early parenthood, when a coyote's spectral presence at their child's birthday party in a Brooklyn park suggests deeper threats.
