A young woman in an arranged marriage awakens one day, surprised to find herself in love with her husband. A retired divorcé tries to become the perfect partner by reading women's magazines. A man's long-standing contempt for his cousin suddenly shifts inward when he witnesses his cousin caring for a sick woman. In this tender and darkly comic collection, the protagonists deceive themselves and engage in odd behaviors as they navigate how to be good, how to make meaningful relationships, and the strengths and pitfalls of self-interest. From a dazzlingly original, critically acclaimed writer, these stories--elegantly written and emotionally immediate--provide an intimate, honest assessment of human relationships between mothers and sons, sons and lovers, and husbands and wives.
