"These short stories consider the concrete—lemons, pigeons, hearing aids—to get at something larger and looser and more abstract: the passage of time, the density and devotion of human feeling, a family’s dissolution, a mother’s distance. I admire the stories’ directness of language, compressed form, and dramatization of subtle and lasting discoveries. From 'Hearing Aids': 'She could hear her thoughts clearly. She was surprised by how uncomplicated they were without the distraction of noise.' These stories struck me like that. They live simply and profoundly on the page." —Corinna Vallianatos
