The collection of short stories explores relationships. Sometimes characters’ secret longings, fantasies, and frustrations drive them to make unusual choices or to fixate on inappropriate people and solutions to their problems. Some characters are sidelined by their inabilities to make their most important needs known to those closest to them. Miscommunication or failing to be understood is a common thread throughout.
