  • Within these fourteen hilarious and insightful tales of urban life, you'll meet:

  • Raiford Phelps, an ornithologist who discovers new patterns of animal behavior when he meets Mary Leibnitz.
  • Benno Morna, a temporary bachelor, free to indulge in TV, junk food, and Greenie Frenzel when his wholesome wife is out of town.
  • Vincent Cadworthy and Guido Morris, whose elegant friendship is suddenly disrupted by Misty Berkowitz.
  • Elizabeth Bayard, whose passion for order and civility does constant battle with her unruly loves.
