From the award-winning author of more than a dozen books, including the novel "Safe Passage," which was made into a movie starring Susan Sarandon, comes a collection of 20 of the writer's short stories originally published in such magazines as McCall's and Good Housekeeping in the 1980s and 1990s-- a celebration of women's magazine fiction during the height of its popularity. Sometimes poignant, sometimes funny, always entertaining, they still feel remarkably relevant to women's complicated lives today.
--A woman takes up running as she struggles to return to normal after her divorce.
--A mother stays home with her children during a school break but longs to be at work -- until her presence becomes crucial in averting a near-tragedy.
--A brilliant engineer deals with a weight problem.
--A teenager thinks her parents are beyond the sexuality she is discovering in herself -- until her mother gets pregnant.
