Ten masterworks of short fiction by turns tender, comic, powerful, and devastating from the highly praised author of The Madonnas of Leningrad
A surprised Southern matriarch is confronted by her family at an intervention. . . . A life-altering breakin triggers insomniac introspection in a desperate actor. . . . Streetwise New York City neighbors let down their guard for a naive puppeteer and must suffer the consequences. . . . In this stunning collection of short stories five of which are being published for the very first time bestselling, award-winning author Debra Dean displays the depth and magnitude of her literary talent. Replete the seamless storytelling and captivating lyrical voice that made her debut novel, The Madonnas of Leningrad, a national bestseller, Dean's Confessions of a Falling Woman is a haunting, satisfying, and unforgettable reading experience.
A novel that dares to be beautiful and fully succeeds. Daily Mail (London)
“A humorous collection . . . Readers will certainly forget themselves in these sparkling stories, pausing over small, strange moments that change entire lives.”
“An attractive wry humor ripples through this collection of ten stories . . . Beautifully calibrated . . . Dean has a fine appreciation for the way chance can save or doom careers and marriages. More, please.”
“Dean is a marvelous chameleon of a writer, adapting, reflecting, revealing multiple, generous worlds with perceptiveness, humor and light.”
-A. Manette Ansay, author of Blue Water and Vinegar Hill
