“Most of Pearlman's stories feature strong female characters whose solitary lives have been altered by unexpected encounters, illustrating truthfully how subtle incidents shape human lives. . . . Four interrelated stories about the management of a soup kitchen for homeless women illustrate the collection's powerful thematic effect.”
