Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0688169996, Hardcover)With same gift for language that marked her praised last book, The Mourners' Bench, Susan Dodd again explores the multifarious and otherworldly nature of love in a wonderful new collection of short stories.
Settings ranging from a desolate island in winter to a broken-down city bus at rush hour are the locale for love's unlikely -- and often inconvenient -- landings in these ten diverse and uncommon stories. An eccentric endodontist repairs a patient's freshly broken heart while performing a root canal. A Haitian woman charms snakes into keeping her company in an urban cave as she safeguards her grandchildren's sleep. A shy illustrator subsists through a long Vermont winter on occasional glimpses of a man in a blue pick-up truck.

An anthology of love stories, two of which are between people of mixed race. In Ethiopia love blooms between two writers, a black man and a white woman, while Adult Education is on a romance between a black postman and a white cleaning lady.
