Peopled by characters struggling with second marriages, abandoning artistic aspirations, or coming to terms with the betrayal of their own expectations, this collection of eleven new stories from Ann Beattie makes it strikingly clear why she is known as one of American literatures most adept explorers and interpreters of the unraveling edges of life(Miami Herald).From the elegiac story The Famous Poet, Amid Bougainvillea, in which two men trade ruminations about the odd experience of being cared for by those you are meant to serve, to The Big-Breasted Pilgrim, wherein a famous chef gets a series of bewildering phone calls from George Stephanopoulos, expressing Clintons desire to dine at his house, to two stories in which family myths turn out to be both inaccurate and prescient,Perfect Recallcomprises Beatties most ambitious and complex work yet.
