Floyd Skloot was named "one of the fifty most inspiring authors in the world" by the magazine Poets & Writers, and he has been called "the Willie Mays of memoirists" by The San Francisco Chronicle. In Skloot's short fiction, people face the starkest challenges, including bodily maladies, the most harrowing of which often come with aging. Gathering stories that originally appeared in excellent journals such as The Virginia Quarterly Review, Ontario Review, North American Review, Glimmer Train, and Witness, this new book by an acclaimed memoirist, novelist and poet shows how bewildering experiences can open to moments of powerful intimacy.
