Publisher's Summary

Barbara Kingsolver has written these five short stories with the same wit and sensitivity that characterize her highly praised and beloved novels Animal Dreams and The Bean Trees. Spreading her characters over a variety of colorful landscapes, she tells stories of hope, momentary joy, and powerful endurance. In every setting, her distinctive voice, at times comic, but often heartrending, rings true as she explores the twin themes of family ties and the life choices one must ultimately make alone.

This collection includes:

  • "Homeland"
  • "Blueprints"
  • "Quality Time"
  • "Extinctions"
  • "Rose-Johnny"

    Story
    "Another great book by Kingsolver!"

    Barbara Kingsolver narrates this book herself and it was very enjoyable to listen to her. The stories are only about 45 minutes in length so great short listens for busy people who don't have the time to get into a long novel.

    Story
    "Great collection of stories."

    This collection carried me to many diverse worlds and times, which is exactly what I have come to expect from Ms Kingsolver. Her voice brought the stories to life in a way far different than the printed page can. She makes you think hard about things and makes you want to be a better person.
