Summary
Packer's sterling collection of stories is framed by two novellas: "Walk for Mankind" about teenager Richard Appleby and his bittersweet relationship with Sasha Horowitz, a rebellious, risk-taking 14-year-old, who has a clandestine affair with a drug dealer; and, "Things Said or Done" set three decades later, when Sasha, now 51 and divorced, has become Richard's caretaker
Summary
A volume of interlinked stories includes the tales of a wife who struggles to make sense of her husband's abrupt departure, a mother who mourns her teenage son through the music collection he left behind, and a woman who reflects on her own broken family while attending a brother's wedding
