3 Installments

An online date with a handsome, enigmatic stranger gradually gives way to an existential crisis for Sylvia, a middle-aged New Yorker who has become accustomed to living in a state of “hysterical normalcy.” In his lucid, seductive prose, Pulitzer and National Book Award finalist Adam Haslett captures the subtle interplay between hope and dread, and the impossibility of shielding oneself from constant disaster while also making an honest, vulnerable connection to another human being.

Also available as part of the story bundle You Don’t Look Like Your Picture: Stories of Love in the Digital Age, six stories for just $4.99.

“Adam Haslett … possesses a rich assortment of literary gifts: an instinctive empathy for his characters and an ability to map their inner lives in startling detail; a knack for graceful, evocative prose; and a determination to trace the hidden arithmetic of relationships.” – New York Times Book Review
