A woman at the end of her marriage tests her power in the story "Floor Plans," inadvertently befriending the neighbor who is trying to buy her apartment, while in "Appetite," a 16-year old grieving her mother's death experiences first love and questions how much more heartbreak she and her family can endure. An NPR Book of the Year, this debut collection of 16 stories about how women make their way in the world also includes "Dinosaurs," the tale of a recent widower and a young babysitter helping each other navigate how much they have to give—and how much they can take—from the people around them.
"Sensitive, intricate, and quietly powerful, Lazarin's stories give voice to women learning to live on their own terms."—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
