From New Orleans to Portland to Manhattan and Paris, Fosters characters circle each other as well as their own fates in fourteen stories that evoke Mary Gaitskill, Lorrie Moore, and Denis Johnson. The heart of what were looking for in life provides the backbone to these surprising and poetic pieces -- in which Foster ultimately reveals the gap between what we hope for and the kind were likely to get.
