I was led to the collection by James Woods's stellar review in the New Yorker and it did not disappoint. The stories hit on something startlingly original and true about the experience of adultery (or almost adultery) for a woman...and the experience of being an intelligent and sensual woman who's fiercely dedicated to her children, the sublimation of the erotic to the maternal and the consequences that flow from that. I am recommending the book to everyone I know.
