Product description

From Booklist

Not only is Moss an enchanting storyteller, she is a deeply thoughtful writer pursuing the vision of paradise. In each of her eight psychologically astute and metaphorically lush stories, Moss gracefully explores the gap between the Edens we imagine and the paradises we attempt to create. In the exquisite opening story, an Iranian Jewish rug dealer living uneasily in exile in allegedly paradisical Southern California with his son and golden daughter-in-law remembers his imprisonment and how he survived by weaving in his mind a complexly patterned rug depicting paradise. In the tender title story, a couple grieving over the death of their gay architect son leave their old, memory-soaked home for a glitzy new condo in the ersatz paradise of a gated community, while in the creepy "Interpreters," a young and far less compatible couple seek refuge reenacting colonial life in a re-created village. Each of Moss' surprising, beautifully constructed, and soulful stories brilliantly illuminates the paradox of paradise: our longing for perfection and our utter inability to sustain it. Donna Seaman
