Synopsis: In this masterful collection, the author’s wise and subtle stories often find lonely, restless characters embarking on unexpected courses of action that evolve in puzzling, yet oddly logical ways. “Baxter’s strength as a writer derives from his mysterious, haunting tone . . . and the slightly surreal quality to his characters’ conversation. . . .” –Chicago Tribune.
