Summary :

Through the Safety Net dives into the undercurrents of middle-class America with eleven arresting, often mesmerizing stories. A drunken graduate student hurtles cheerfully through a snowstorm to rescue a fiancée who no longer wants him. A hospital maintenance worker makes a perverse bid for his place in the sunlight of celebrity. A man and a woman who have lost their only child cling fiercely to the one thing they have left of her--their grief. Whether they know it or not, the characters of Safety Net are floating above an abyss of unruly desire, inexplicable dread, unforeseen tragedy, and sudden moments of grace.
