Rachel Seiffert, author of The Dark Room, powerfully evokes our need for human connection in this dazzling and haunting group of stories. Set against immense political upheaval, or evoking the intimate struggles between men and women, parents and children, this astonishing collection charts our desire for love, our fragility, and our strength. From the title piece, in which a young biologist conceals his discoveries at a polluted river from a local woman, to the family aided by an enemy in "The Crossing," to the old man weighing his regrets in "Francis John Jones, 1924-" Seiffert's acclaimed, refined prose movingly captures the lives of her characters in their most essential, secret moments. From the Trade Paperback edition.
