A mother explains to her daughter — a little sociopath who will stalk my slumber for years — the facts of her burgeoning body. A western settler experiences VERY squirmy feelings towards an advancing and hungry bear. New parents find a much-needed joyful afternoon suddenly threaded with a malice which forces them to confront their mutual infidelity and individual dark histories. The connecting thread of extremism is a mirror of our times that leaves the skin feeling silty and coarse but the stories do not entirely abandon joy, giving the book a scope that makes it feel like a real gift.
