The essential mystery at the heart of every relationship is the subject of these 12 stories. What draws people together? What drives them apart? Revenge, boredom, sex — they’re all here. There’s the careless pair at the heart of ”Glass Meadow,” parents whose love for each other is so all-consuming they don’t see what it does to their two sons. And there’s the man in ”Valor,” estranged from his wife, who saves a busload of children but can’t save his own marriage. The landscape of the heart depicted here is less bleak than it sounds; what drives these stories is the belief that love is reachable just around the bend.
