Overview

From the author of Billy and Girl, this collection of stories explores the emptiness at the center of the characters’ lives and their attempts to fill this lack. In Cave Girl Cass goes through a sex change, not to become a man, but rather to become less of a real girl and more of a pretend woman. Her surgery transforms her into a woman desired by all men–including her brother. Conversations with Famous Artists I Have Known relates an afternoon discussion between two women, one who chose motherhood and a routine life at the expense of her creativity, the other a world famous, self-centered artist. In these stories about friendship, motherhood, and the search for enduring love, rules about decency and kindness are broken and repaired as men and women attempt to achieve an elusive sense of fulfillment.
