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"
