ABOUT THIS BOOK:
Her stories portray a young Irish girl's view of obsessive love and its often wrenching pain, while tales of contemporary life show women who open themselves to sexuality, to disappointment, to madness. Throughout, there is always O'Brien's voice wondrous, despairing, moving examining passionate subjects that lay bare the desire and needs that can be hidden in a woman's heart.(Publisher). Very good.
