Summary (From the publisher):

In this collection of short stories, Peter Cameron describes lives of quiet desperation: people trapped in unfulfilling commitments, overcome by their own indifference, confronted with life's inevitable changes. With remarkable grace, acuity, and humor, he examines the small dramas of ordinary life and brilliantly captures the serene poignancy of daily struggles.
