A love-struck young ranch hand, an aging Argentine lover, a trusted confidante who isn't a friend and two hitchhikers named Bonnie and Clyde. Meloy's unforgettable characters have each reached a fork in the road. But what kind of fool wants it only one way? These eleven stories are funny, sly and sparkling with energy . A joyous read.
Maile Meloy's first collection of short stories, Half in Love, was published in 2002. She has also written two novels: Liars and Saints, which was shortlisted for the Orange Prize for Fiction, and A Family Daughter.
