A Chapter from Her Upbringing: And Other Stories
In these diverse, inventive short stories, the imagination is a major character, as much as any man, woman, or child. A starving man falls in love with a ghastly stranger glimpsed on the street. A failed businessman envisions a female employee "doubled, twinned, in sapphic relation to herself." A woman relives the confusion of childhood bigotry from the distance of middle age. A disabled doctor and a former patient intersect in separate reveries.
