Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0425191826, Paperback)

Centered around a marriage-before, during, and after-this remarkable novel takes readers into the lives of Phillip and Harriet Stedman and reveals in sparkling, beautifully rendered prose what they mean to each other, to in-laws and children and friends and lovers...and how, despite our best attempts at building relationships, our understanding of even those closest to us can be as fleeting and fragile as a sculpture made of sand.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 17:58:00 -0400)

"This collection of stories spans several deacdes: from a summer in 1950 at the Jersey Shore in which the conflicts of an extended family are powerfully portrayed, to the present when it seems that the fate of three generations hang precariously on the outcome of a single ballet performance. On all fronts Joann Kobin is a master of subtlety and manages to find great poignancy and power in the finely observed moments when family members connect or fail to connect. Her fictions embrace and augment one another, at dance recitals, on the streets of Florence, the beaches of Cape Cod, at a college conference. The Stedmans drift apart and then come together, sometimes with grace, more often with uncertainty, determined to survive the heartaches of love."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
