These richly detailed dramas of small actions with large consequences will enhance any general fiction collection. These are stories of lost love, hope, and innocence, turning on a misinterpreted phrase or a misplaced handbag. Friendships split as revenge is taken on a Joycean scholar or is exacted by a lexicographer's daughter, in both cases destroying a life's work. The impossible love of two young girls for a dying boy becomes the wedge that leaves them passing strangerstourists, as many here, in their own lives. The stories are set in Ireland, England, and Italy; and the "news" from every quarter seems to be that no one escapes the evocative powers of memory, no one the past.

Set in London, Venice, Florence and rural Ireland, these 12 tales depict ordinary people in mundane situations. PW observed that "the author's insight into the human condition, coupled with his clean, spare prose, makes these characters and their predicaments vibrant and memorable."
