Marge Piercy's debut collection of short stories offers glimpses into the lives of everyday women moving through and making sense of their worlds. Keeping to the engaging, accessible language of Piercy's novels, the collection spans decades of her writing. From the first-person account of hoarding (Saving Mother from Herself') to a girl's narrative of sexual and spiritual discovery ('Going over Jordan') to a recount of a past love affair ('The Easy Arrangement'), each story is a tangible, vivid snapshot in a varied and subtly curated gallery of work.'

These stories are about ordinary women. Some provide some insight into Piercy's past. As always, an interesting,often humorous and authentic writer.
