Like an arrowhead, the title story in this collection pierces through our tough skin and through to what's delicate within. It's the first piece in a triptych that elegantly holds together this stunning collection about love and loss and longing--our feeble human institutions and fragile relationships broken down and rusting; our tender hearts shot through with tragedy and dysfunction but still struggling to stay alive, to find wholeness and healing and rebirth in nature, or just to keep beating as long as possible in the face of overwhelming sorrow.
