Description

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 naïve 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)
