Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0451203755, Paperback)
Featuring the two novellas:
The Train Now Departing and When “The Mousetrap” Closes
“Full of suspense and surprise. These carefully written little gems showcase Grimes at her best.”—Library Journal
“Grimes has created a work of value here, a book that expands her art, her reputation—and possibly her audience.”—The Richmond-Times Dispatch
“Atmospheric and chilling…Grimes [exhibits] a complete mastery of emotional nuance and [a] virtuoso treatment of the grayest coloration.”—The Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
“Intelligent…Merits applause.”—The Toronto Star
“As atmospherically evocative as [an] Edward Hopper painting.”—The Washington Post
“An a cappella novella, each note strong and noncompetitive.”—Los Angeles Times
“Grimes once again demonstrates her keen eye for character. Both of these languidly paced novellas focus on middle-aged women who long for respite from their narrow, disappointing lives and find it, at least temporarily, in the company of a man…Thoughtful, compelling, even dark stories—for readers more inclined toward investigating emotions than searching for armchair adventure.”—Booklist
