Rebecca Rule "writes stories of New England that are deep and simple, local and universal," says the Concord (NH) Monitor, while Publishers Weekly says she "has an unerring ear for idiom and inflection, and her character's voices are spot-on." This critically acclaimed collection of nineteen stories, named an "essential New Hampshire book" in New Hampshire Magazine, is now available for the first time in paperback. Whether it's a young couple waging a silent struggle over priorities in their marriage, or a mother coping with a hated neighbor through an outlandish sculpture, or an elderly woman placidly knitting at town meeting even as she directs an amazing string of unspoken invective against an enemy, Rule's "portraits are exquisite," says Library Journal. "Readers will recognize themselves in every story."
