dc.description.abstractIn keeping with the title, this collection of nine stories trains its lens on a broad range of human experience. What has resulted from this perspective is a cocktail of divergent genres, geographies, voices, and emotional registers. In spite of their differences, these stories come together to create a somewhat novelistic arc by following a basic trajectory of human life. The trajectory navigates certain representative stages of human development, focusing on late childhood and adolescence in Part One of the collection, early and middle adulthood in Part Two, and finally, advanced adulthood and confrontations with death in Part Three. The collection hopes to suggest ways in which we ourselves, in all our irreducible complexity, are nonetheless unified by similar psychosocial needs, by yearnings to connect with and bring order to our environments, by our failures at the precipitous edges of language, and by our common alienation.en_US
