• Winner of the 1991 Drue Heinz Literature Prize One of the purest pleasures of book reviewing is finding unannounced among the stack of new arrivals in the mail every week a collection by a new writer so sharp and engaging one would read it gladly even if it wasn't one's job to do so.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A missing infant born without eyes; an old woman dying in a hospital; a child grieving for a dying parent; a homesick girl ``sick of having no home to be sick for.'' If you need another collection of serious short stories depicting episodes of loneliness or pain in the lives of young children and old people, these ten vignettes are deliberately and competently written. Most are reprinted from various literary magazines, and, as a collection, have won the Drue Heinz Prize for short fiction.-- Maurice Taylor, Brunswick Cty. Lib., Southport, N.C.
