These ten wise, extraordinary tales explore the mysteries of love and our complex desire for connection. Spanning wide and diverse geographies America, Nepal, South Africa, Germany they showcase Guterson's gifts for psychological nuance, emotional suspense, and evocation of the natural world.
In these pages, we meet, among others, a lonely landlord trying to reach out to his tenants; a middle-aged widower looking for love online; an American Jew traveling to Berlin to confront his haunted past. Celebrating the surprises that lurk within the dramas of our daily lives, Problems with People marks the return of a contemporary American master to the form that launched his literary career.
