From the Publisher
In this skillfully controlled collection, we view a world divided into two categories -- threats and gossip. Threats are revealed in a morning swim of in a ''slash of red lipstick'' or in a walk down a midnight street. Gossip is heard from a bar stool, over breakfast in Italy, or from little girls running in summer dresses. Unsettling and at time humorous, charming and sometimes chilling, Joe Cummings captures memories, moments, and suspicions, and frames them with a powerful and poignant clarity.
