Reviews

A collection of stories about lives shattered by divorce or death, with protagonists discovering that the pieces they are trying to put together no longer fit, and perhaps never did..... Powerfully unsettling stories in which men nearing the end of their lives wonder, befuddled, if that's all there is."--Kirkus Reviews
"Once again, virtuoso Ford deftly sails the seas and storms of consciousness."--Booklist (starred review)
