Summary
With deep feeling and sharp insight, Pollitt writes about the death of her father; the sad but noble final days of a leftist study group of which she was a member; and the betrayal and heartbreak inflicted by a man who seriously deceived her. (Her infinitely patient, gentle driving instructor points out her weakness--"Observation, Katha, observation!") She also offers a candid view of her preoccupation with her ex-lover's haunting presence on the Internet, and her search there for a secret link that might provide a revelation about him that will Explain Everything.--From publisher's description
Summary
Through a series of short stories, the author reexamines her life in the wake of a devastating personal betrayal, discussing such topics as her ex-lover's Internet presence, conflict over flying the flag after 9/11, her driving teacher, and heartbreak
