A young Irish girl falls in love with an older married professor and has her first date with heartache- a middle-aged woman attends her nieces wedding and drunkenly surveys the wreck of her own life and love affairs- a young woman admires her kind and beautiful neighbour so much that she is almost drawn into a not so innocent profession ...Adversity, sometimes disaster, befalls Norma Harrss characters, but instead of destroying these people, it often miraculously enriches their existence, bringing them a sudden awareness of what had been wrong with their lives and inspiring them to make a fresh start.Ms. Harrs seamlessly weaves together plot and evocative detail, wildly funny turns of events and inconsolable sadness- her stories earthy eroticism, their startlingly vivid dialogue and, above all, their breathtakingly original rendering of suffering and joy will remain with the reader long after the final page.
