From the prizewinning novelist and world-renowned short-story writer, the author of last years universally acclaimed novelPeace (A brilliant one-act drama depicting the futility and moral complexity of combat The New York Times),eleven indelible new tales that showcase the electrifying artistry of a master. A brief adulterous tryst illuminates the fragility of our most intimate relations. A husband confronts the power of youth and the inexorable truths of old age. A son sits by his mothers bedside determined to give her what she needs in her final days, even though doing so involves breaking his own heart. A young man returns in the face of crisis to the parents he once rejected. A young woman, after a divorce, visits her mother to find that the older woman has reconciled with the young womans distant father. A wife with two sons and a husband who has been shot must weather a terrible snowstorm, and a storm of doubt about the extent of his involvement in a crime. Richard Bauschs stories contend with transfixing themes: marital and familial estrangement, ways of trespass, the intractable mysteries and frights of daily life in these times, the uncertainty of knowledge and truth, the gulfs between friends and lovers, the frailty of even the most abiding lovewhile underlining, all along, the persistence of love, the obdurate forces that connect us. His consummate skill, dark wit, and unfailing emotional generosity are on glorious display in this fine new collection.
