Read by Jeffrey Eugenides, Ari Fliakos, and Cynthia Nixon.
This collection of stories presents characters in the midst of personal and national emergencies. We meet a failed poet who, envious of other people's wealth during the real-estate bubble, becomes an embezzler; a clavichordist whose dreams of art founder under the obligations of marriage and fatherhood; a sexually confused college freshman whose encounter with a stranger on a train leads to a revelation about his past and his future; and a high school student whose wish to escape the strictures of her immigrant family lead her to a drastic decision that upends the life of a middle-aged British physicist.
