Read full description of the books:



Here, a woman is floored by the loss of her young child and struggles to disentangle her superstitious fears from her terrible sense of guilt. A recent college graduate living in New York City finds himself in a strangely complicated friendship with his Korean dry cleaner and her son. A daughter accompanies her father to Israel, where, seeing a new side of him away from her mother, she makes an unusual bargain. Through twelve finely crafted stories, some stand-alone, others woven with linked characters, Kane explores the tensions between friendship and acquaintance, between love and like, between duty and choice, and reveals the everyday patterns that can - with time and repetition - swerve a life off course.
