Product Details

Praise

“Cautionary tales, brilliantly told.”—The Boston Globe

“Ms. Grimes is adept at building suspense…[She] has created a work of value here, a book that expands her art, her reputation—and possibly her audience.”—The Richmond-Times Dispatch

“Intelligent…They also force us to slow down, to look beneath the cliches about what’s hip and what’s not…Merits applause.”—The Toronto Star

“Clear-eyed, nuanced probings into the cruelty of isolation, and though persuasively sad, neither novella is at all sentimental.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Touching…One is moved by her ability to suggest the aching emotional chasm of apparently solid middle-aged lives.” —Publishers Weekly

“Atmospheric novellas….full of suspense and surprise. These carefully written little gems showcase Grimes at her best.” —Library Journal

“Each focuses on a single woman living a mundane, well-ordered life until that seeming contentment is derailed by a man with sinister intent. This is Grimes in prim Barbara Pym clothing.”—The Ottawa Citizen
