Description: By turns wry, lyrical, and poignant, this extraordinary collection shows us people who attempt to create and inhabit their own model worlds, only to watch them collapse in the face of the real world.

In "S ANGEL" a group of wedding guests is hijacked by a fast-talking real estate agent, but not before the bride herself disappears. "Smoke" takes us to a baseball catcher's funeral, where one of the mourners, a has-been pitcher, confronts the ruins of his career. In the hilarious tide story, a graduate student plagiarizes a dissertation on the movement of clouds, only to find himself and his faculty adviser in a parlor game where each player must confess the worst thing he or she has ever done. The second part of the book, "The Lost World", is a series of stories about a young boy, Nathan Shapiro, who must face the wrenching emotions caused by his parents, ' bitter divorce.
