Whenever I read Ann Beattie, I wonder why it's been so long, and why she isn't in my pantheon of favorite writers. These stories are perfect little gems. A husband and wife are driving home from a dinner party, on a snowy night; upon their safe return, the husband is too tired, or a wee bit drunk, and cannot make it upstairs. Her response touches not only for what it means in the moment, but what it says about their marriage in toto, and the struggle that they have been through in the wake of a tragic loss. A successful realtor has a surprising talisman, which may or may not account for her remarkable career.

All of these folks are fairly well-to-do, usually middle-aged, generally married - or used to be. They are classic contemporary American archetypes. Yet Beattie finds telling, even harrowing details in their lives which make them worthy of literature. The bowl is a gift from a past lover, and she has kept her husband ignorant of its origins. Many of these stories involve infidelity - but that's rarely the dramatic event, either.

These are genuine slice-of-life moments, which seems to wander into and out of the character's lives at small, precise incidents. It takes a writer of Beattie's command to render such tiny fractals as a full story. Many are quite short, a few pages. But I was in tears at the end of one of the briefest, when the couple made it safely home but not upstairs.

Beautiful work from a brilliant writer.

Ann Beattie's very best ever! Mrs. Beattie has the power to
capture the human spirit with words like a child with a
butterfly net. Her stories expose a piece of truth that
the reader will find lies well hidden within themselves.
Each story not only provides insight into the life of a
character who appears naked on the page in a brilliant light,
but also forces an intraverted look at oneself. Beattie writes
what we are afraid to think.
