Lynne Barrett


List Price: 15.95*
* Individual store prices may vary.


Set in the frantic pace of the hip, edgy contemporary world, the characters that fill Lynne Barrett’s second collection of stories are on the go. These are stories of savvy, sharp women—women who know the score—women who may be bitter, but who are resigned to the choices they’re about to make. These are women—and men—who are all making good time, because the strongest thing going for them is an unrelenting belief in themselves.
