The Trouble with You isby Susan Jackson Rodgers
As the title suggests, these fifteen collected stories center on a moment of judgment. Fertile imagination has allowed the characters to pretend all is well, to ignore the dangerous distances that steadily creep into their intimate relationships, to believe the other person will change to suit their needs. Still, the time surely comes when attractive fantasies falter and only truth will do. Susan Jackson Rodgers teaches creative writing at Kansas State University. She is a past winner of the Lorian Hemingway Short Story Competition. The Trouble With You Is received the First Series Award for Short Fiction.

This was a book of stories, while I could take or leave some, I very much enjoyed others. She has a wonderful way of describing things.
