Description: This is Ms. Thon at her most vivid: the dark, urgent lyricism, the insistent physicality". -- The New Times Book Review

"These stories come from...the borderlands, the margins of our affluent culture. They are populated primarily by young people...whose bodies, minds, and spirits are being used up by themselves and by others for the briefest and often most heartbreakingly meager pleasures: a dance with a stranger; breaking into a house and eating pecan pie; a bowl of cherries...
