Summary: These fifteen exquisitely honed stories reveal Hempel at her most compassionate and spirited, as she introduces characters, lonely and adrift, searching for connection. In A Full-Service Shelter, a volunteer at a dog shelter tirelessly, devotedly cares for dogs on a list to be euthanized. In Greed, a spurned wife examines her husband's affair with a glamorous, older married woman. And in Cloudland, the longest story in the collection, a woman reckons with the choice she made as a teenager to give up her newborn infant. Quietly dazzling, these stories are replete with moments of revelation and transcendence and with Hempel's singular, startling, inimitable sentences.
