When her father-in-law dies, Carol prepares to go through the process of grieving with her husband. What she does not expect is to become entrenched in memories of her own father and their distant relationship, an experience that leads her to consider the many ways in which people mourn and begin to let their loved ones go. Fever is a collection of sixteen short stories that reveal the secret inner lives of women and men, skilfully peeling back their defenses to expose crystallizing moments of joy, pain, fear, and guiltless pleasure.
