Overview

The Peaceable Kingdom: Stories by Francine Prose

Stories of innocence lost, from a master observer of modern life
The citizens of Prose’s realm are perpetually experiencing surprises. Nothing is reliable in their world, where dream vacations, weddings, and parties go sideways; strangers make unexpected confessions; and even family pets can sow discord. The peaceable kingdom of the everyday is streaked with darker, harsher truths.
