First published in the mid-80's, this is the third short story collection from acclaimed author Alice Adams. The theme of the stories is of people traveling - toward a new experience, a fresh relationship, even toward a confrontation or reconcilation with the past. Think of people opening up to 'accidental magic.'
From the back cover: "Alice Adams has been widely hailed for her beautiful writing and for her ability to bring alive every human emotion. In this new collection of short stories -- her first since the dazzling novel Superior Women -- one of today's most important and admired writers explores the emotional adventures and changes that beckon us as we journey through our constantly changing lives. 'Splendid . . . the insights are flashes of brilliance, the endings always tidy and beautifully natural.' - People magazine "
