A collection of stories by

 
 
A young woman in an arranged marriage awakens one day surprised to find herself in love with her husband. A retired divorcee tries to become the perfect partner by reading women's magazines. A man's longstanding contempt for his cousin suddenly shifts inward when he witnesses his cousin caring for a sick woman. The protagonists in A Life of Adventure and Delight deceive themselves and engage in odd behaviors as they navigate how to be good, how to make meaningful relationships, and the strengths and pitfalls of self-interest. Elegantly written and emotionally immediate, the stories provide an intimate and profound assessment of human relationships between mothers and sons, sons and lovers, and husband and wives.
