A rising literary star debuts with 12 wry, poignant stories of love, hope, and transformation.

In "Some People Must Really Fall in Love", an assistant professor takes halting steps into the awkward, adult world of office politics and blind dates while harboring feelings for one of her freshman students. Two grown sisters struggle with old assumptions about each other as they stumble to build a new relationship in "A Map of Modern Palm Springs." Rome is the setting of "Puttanesca", as two young widows move tentatively forward, still surrounded by ghosts and disappointments from the past.

These 12 stories, filled with the sharp humor, emotional acuity, and joyful language that are sure to become Straub's hallmarks, announce the arrival of a major new talent.
