The title story tells of Marian Nakamura who pickles the fallen pears to remember a husband who took a fatal fall from an upper branch of a pear tree. The story won a place on the final ten list of a 2010 "The New Yorker" magazine competition. In another story a Minnesota woman learns to paint in Santa Fe and finds acclaim for her colorful canvases, only to walk away from them. A native American artist paints a cathedral scene, loosing the powers of old spirits. An even more notable force breaks into a fourth painter's life, the ancient Old Goddess wanting a place in the new world.

Douglas Atwill lives in Santa Fe, where he paints landscapes of New Mexico and his own gardens. This is his sixth book from Sunstone Press including "Why I Won't Be Going to Lunch Anymore," "The Galisteo Escarpment," "Imperial Yellow," "Creep Around the Corner" and "The Oyster Shell Driveway."
