    Description
    A tremendous collection of award-winning short stories from a strong new American voice. Bold, daring and wonderfully moving, these are important, generous stories; compassionate expressions of what can destroy, bewilder and console.

    From a married man consummating a hazy summer affair and getting lost in a reverie that explains the "far-away look in his eyes" to a recently widowed woman who must decide what to do with the video of her honeymoon love-making, David Means probes the depths of the human heart.

    The stories are panoramic in scope and exhilarating in their narrative twists; a starving tramp interrupts a wedding reception in New York, altering the lives of all those who are present; a Depression-era hobo clings to the underside of a freight train as it roars through the desert night; a business executive sheds his shoes for an evening walk along the railway tracks and straight into the heart of darkness.
