Review

The short stories in the first half of this collection feature Nora Jane Whittington, one of Ellen Gilchrist''s familiar characters, and through Nora Jane and her family and friends, Gilchrist explores the complex balancing of relationships. The stories in the second half have many varying points of view--including a non-human one, that of a bear cub. These thoughtful tales, alive with vivid description, revolve around the tensions between the mind and the body, and between what is desired and what is achievable.

Short Desription

Nora Jane, a former wild girl turned happily married mother of twins, finds herself on the brink of returning to college and facing such challenges as a new singing career, another pregnancy, the return of an old boyfriend, and the assassination of a visiting poet. 30,000 first printing. Tour.
