Collected here together for the first time, all the dazzling, funny and poignant stories from one of America's finest contemporary writers.

Amy Bloom has long been regarded as a master of the short story form. Here, her brilliance shines across two decades and more than twenty-five stories. From the bereaved widow who finds unexpected comfort in 'Sleepwalking', to the matchmaking shrink in 'Psychoanalysis Changed My Life'; from the teenage girl furious at her dying mother in 'Hold Tight' to the transgressive lovers of 'The Gates Are Closing'; from the married friends irresistibly drawn to one another in 'William and Clare' to the brave and heartless girl in 'Permafrost' - these are stories brimming with life and grief, erotically-charged and beautifully crafted.

Author bio:

AMY BLOOM is the author of three novels: Lucky Us, Away and Love Invents Us, and three collections of stories: Come to Me, A Blind Man Can See How Much I Love You and Where the God of Love Hangs Out. She has been nominated for the National Book Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award, and is the University Writer in Residence at Wesleyan University.
