In this startling new collection by prize-winning author Alyce Miller, changing images of water as a force both destructive and healing are woven throughout. Miller moves masterfully through the psychological currents of her complex characters at their telling moments of chaos and resolution. In Swimming, Helen swims religiously to cope with her inability to bear a child. In Hawaii, Tajiri, an eight-year-old boy, takes a violent turn in his need to connect to an absent father. Whether giving voice to the nameless wife from a tale by Chekhov or illustrating the fears driving apart black and white communities in small-town Ohio, Miller makes vivid the heart of human interaction. These stories told from different perspectives of age, race, and gender, acknowledge a common rhythm in each of us—unsettled desire.
