The way people run: stories
Against the backdrop of vivid settings, especially the Chesapeake Bay region and the American West, and observed with passion, generosity and grace, these stunning short stories illuminate the deep emotional connections and disconnections both between people and within them. In the title story, chosen for the 1992 Best American Short Stories volume, a man goes west to find a new job and loses his hold on his old life. In "Something Important," Peter Ramsey undertakes a reunion with his long-lost brother, and discovers that his wife is in love with someone else. In "Things Left Undone," which appeared in the 1994 edition of Best American Short Stories, a young couple tries to survive a tragedy. Life's truths are at the heart of these magnificent stories by a modern American master. Book jacket.
