These stories explore, with poignancy and wit, the treacherous, alluring, and sometimes painful territories of memory, family, and friendship. Hammond's stories probe beyond the surface of our lives to consider the complexities that underlie the most ordinary of relationships and the painful difficulty by which even small insights are achieved. Her characters sometimes flinch from their hard-earned wisdom, but their journeys to comprehension offer the reader a rich and unforgettable experience.
