1 Review
In these nineteen stories, David H. Lynn presents a vivid tapestry of human experience. From India to England, California to Detroit, we see the way in which people's lives and ambitions inevitably collide. They fight for property and torture each other's dogs. They rekindle old romances and build new futures in foreign lands. Following David Lynn around the world, we meet strangers who seem both exotic and familiar and find that their aspirations and fears look much like our own.

While many of the stories have appeared previously in publications like the Michigan Quarterly Review, Ontario Review, Triquarterly, Story Quarterly, Salt, Glimmer Train, and Salmagundi, the collection also includes four never-before-published stories.
