A father tries to convince his uncompromising, anorexic daughter to want to live, a single woman lures men to her bed only to abandon them, and marriage is shaken by a search party for a woman who has disappeared. The collection presents fractured windows into the everyday lives of women torn asunder by love lost and grief gained.
