In prose that is by turns spare and lyrical, the stories in this collection capture the heady, invincible feeling of late summer as they describe the sharp pinch of doing the right thing and regretting it and recall exhilarating memories of making bets and dancing naked. From rain-soaked Seattle to drought-stricken California, from the front seat of a mothera€™s Malibu to a vacation cabin on Cape Cod, and from a tiny island to a desert drenched in light and heat, these 16 short tales introduce readers to characters such as a boy trying to make it through the summer between the end of high school and the start of something else, a woman attracted to a muscular man because it makes her feel safea€”right up until it doesna€™ta€”and a man who can only imagine what ita€™s like to sleep with many different women. The fully-realized, well-rounded individuals who populate these pages will resonate with readers.... to figure out how to adjust a newly-delivered ergonomic desk chair, without reading the tiny three-language manual, when he gets a call from Kara. ... Casey is impressed that she can afford to buy at her age; she says she got a good deal because the owners were going ... The garage is so narrow he can barely get out of her Mazda ProtAcgAc, but the upstairs is surprisingly roomy with lots of natural light.
