"The unifying theme of these stories, varied in setting and approach, is on the contract between human beings, the meetings that bring their lives to flowering or that fail, driving them back into their essential loneliness. Like figures in lamplight surrounded by an immense darkness, these men and women, coming together and parting, haunt the reader's memory."
