Honored Guest by Joy Williams

Book Description

With her singular brand of gorgeous dark humor, Joy Williams explores the various ways comic, tragic, and unnerving we seek to accommodate diminishment and loss. A masseuse breaks her rich client's wrist bone, a friend visits at the hospital long after she is welcome, and a woman surrenders her husband to a creepily adoring student. From one of our most acclaimed writers, Honored Guest is a rich examination of our capacity for transformation and salvation."
