Synopsis: The Southern Review and LSU Short Fiction Award, 1995. Here are barmaids and black musicians, single mothers and burnt-out businessmen, all struggling a little too close to the edge in lives where a lot is at risk. These nine stories draw on Paula Gover’s own experience–as an army wife living in a trailer in Georgia and as an often unemployed single mother back in her Michigan hometown. A daring new writer who brings richness and depth to her fiction, Gover slices into ordinary American lives and exposes what it is that makes each one extraordinary.
