This collection of stories about love and privacy is serious, funny, tender, and alive with the elegance and spirit that characterise Laurie Colwin’s work. In these stories, the reader moves among young men and women: pianists, historians, book illustrators, architects; women who are composed and inimitably sassy; and men who are magnetic, adventurous in love, or fiendishly elusive. They are people who are experiencing, often for the first time, the starting, enriching, and maddening complications of adult life.
