Summary (From the publisher):

The men and woman who inhabit the short stories of Mavis Gallant fall in love, squabble, grieve, dream and ultimately survive in ways that reflect the human condition with deadly accuracy.

Whether set in rural Quebec or the cosmopolitan world of Paris, these stories are crafted with subtlety, compassion and an irrepressible wit. Edmund Wilson, the noted American critic, described Gallant's writing as "more international than Canadian," and it is this scope, this quality of broad universality, which distinguishes the stories in this collection.
