A Nice Gazebo
What do husbands, sitting on the porch in the dark, talk about while their wives take a late night walk down a country road? This is the question that opens this debut collection of short fiction, which explores the quiet lives of the men and women with a poet's unerring eye for detail. Everyday events resonate with surprising delights, and the stories linger long after one has finished reading them.
