A solitary woman, her life changed by an afternoon of `wanting, wanting, wanting', becomes obsessed with a writer at his desk by the window below. A nameless, middle-aged narrator, his sexuality awakened by the manipulative mother of a classmate, looks back to that hot summer in the `Garden of Eden', where young lives were changed and ruined. And Lennie-girl's father, craving the warmth of his birthplace, forsakes his daughter and vulnerable son.
Three stories from a nineteen-story collection in which themes of love and loss, break up and renewal, pleasures and regrets, weave in and out of the lives of protagonists whose ages range from thirteen to sixty-something.
