Summary (From the publisher):

In each taut, agile tale, characters negotiate situations that are often both mundane and bizarre: a cafeteria cook confronts her Polish pen pal; a divorced mother gains insight from a parking meter; a beautiful, thin, and famous woman succumbs to the lure of comfort food. In several stories a soulful, curious woman named Ulli takes up residence in the reader's imagination - stumbling across a strange collector of religious icons, contemplating a youthful pregnancy, and remembering a troubled lover.
