Description: In this probing collection, Mary Morris' combines her consummate craft as a storyteller with her gift for dramatic travel writing. The Lifeguard is a powerful and haunting book of ten short stories -- the fruits of a writer's talents at their peak.

In the tide story, a teenage lifeguard sees his mystique among the girls on the beach dissolve in a panicked moment when he cannot save a child. In "The Glass-Bottom Boat", a mother on her first trip abroad learns about trust from a solicitous stranger.

Returning to the short story form after several novels and travel memoirs, Mary Morris again shows her great sensitivity to men and women at moments of turbulence, uncertainty, and crisis.

"These knowing, sometimes dark tales, are about people struggling to connect with each other in spite of their own ambivalence". -- Glamour
