Editorial Reviews

“In her award-winning debut collection, Beth Helms offers up a cohesive collection of portraits of American couples, then breaks them apart and examines the cracks and the fissures in those relationships. The stories juxtapose the awful and the tender in such a way that truth, in all its complexity, resounds loudest. . . . a haunting snapshot of domestic worlds that we all fear to know.”—Rain Taxi
