"'Linked' doesn't begin to describe the complex web Silber has woven... Emotionally, it's astounding... [A] beautiful, intricate, and wise collection." - New York Times Book Review


When is it wise to be a fool for something? What makes people want to be better than they are? From New York to India to Paris, from the Catholic Worker movement to Occupy Wall Street, the characters in Joan Silber's dazzling new story cycle tackles this question head-on.
