A natural evolution from the earlier, much-acclaimed collection In Love & Trouble, these fourteen provocative and often humorous stories show women oppressed but not defeated. “[Walker] shrinks from no moral or emotional complexity, and she writes consummately skillful short stories” (Alice Adams, San Francisco Examiner & Chronicle).
