Summary (From the publisher):

From the publisher
In these stories, mothers escape to remote country villages, making prisoners of their young children. A young man is made an indentured servant by his father, his violence atoning for loneliness. A wife comes to fear the closeness of her own husband's attentions. Haunted by the past, these stories explore the paradox of home as both a place of departure and return, comprising a range of voices portrayed with breathtaking skill.
