Book Description

Jan. 16 1998
Spanning two decades in the lives of the generation that came of age in the 1960s. A story cycle about a past, and a present, strewn with unfinished relationships. The men and women whose lives intersect in these connected stories are drawn away from the cities where they live to Mexico, to Greece, and to the hinterlands of Quebec and Vermont. There, in the clear light of day, they find the confusions and regrets of their lives vying with the unhurried pleasures of the wilderness. These deeply felt, thoughtful, and admirably unsentimental stories, tinged not only with anguish but with a fisherman's quiet, resilient hopefulness, are for everyone who has stopped in mid-stream to cast a backward glance over life and love.
