This collection of short stories looks at the undeniable power of myth, these tales of initiation and betrayal focus on a gallery of characters - a rootless young woman confronts her divorced parents and a 14-year-old girl who leaves a series of foster homes for the world of drug addicts.
With this brilliant collection of short stories, Jayne Anne Phillips immediately established herself as one of the most gifted young writers of her generation.'These stories of America's disenfranchised are unlike any in our literature. She is an original, and this book of hers is a crooked beauty.' Raymond Carver
