Publisher's Summary

Zora, just separated from her American husband, with a six-year old daughter, Anar, has had a highly unsettled life so far. After her marriage falls apart, she moves with Anar to a row house in Cambridge, MA, that shares a backyard with several young families. She hopes to develop friendships with the other mothers but soon finds that this is not a big, happy family she has moved into. Anxiety over the children and threats to their well-being hang in the air; marital problems surface among the couples. In spite of the transparency of the tenants' activities, as seen through the sliding glass doors opening on the common backyard, hidden and ambiguous aspects permeate the air.

One day Anar disappears; with this shock and its resolution, Zora comes to realize that her search for a place in the world might not yet be over.

Critic Reviews

"The writing captures the gasping panic...beautifully...a story about the flipside of love: the consuming fear of loss." (Chicago Tribune)
