Description: Welcome to the curious fictional world of Elizabeth Stuckey-French, where powerful emotional forces roil the outwardly placid surfaces of her characters' lives. These twelve stories are peopled mostly by wily women of the Midwest. They are creative liars, practiced in the art of indirect aggression, though Stuckey-French portrays them with great humor, wit, and affection.

In "Junior" we meet a dog psychic who enlists her troubled niece in a moneymaking scheme. In "Electric Wizard", grieving parents beg a teacher to invent poetry and pretend their dead son wrote it. And in the title story, the mother of two young children drives east on a disordered impulse through a blizzard and picks up a gas station attendant along the way.

Stuckey-French's writing is understated a la Ann Beattie, Midwestern a la Antonya Nelson, and quirky a la Aimee Bender. With stylish, wry writing, she creates poignant, funny fiction that has a resounding emotional truth.
