Book DescriptionAward-winning author Diane Schoemperlen's twenty-one exceptional stories showcase all the magic, charm, and intelligence of her novel Our Lady of the Lost and Found. Written over the past twenty years, and drawing upon a wide range of themes, subjects, and styles, these thoughtful selections are infused with Schoemperlen's freshness of observation and unique gift for narrative. "Losing Ground" is a remarkable coming-of-age story in which the harsh realities of death and discrimination start to impinge on a young girl's life. In "The Man of My Dreams," the truths of a disintegrating relationship counterpose and merge with the dream world of the narrator. And in the title story, items of a woman's clothing carry the memories of past years, illuminating the truths of life-its sorrows, its mysteries, and its consolations.
