Bingham writes with an austere and unerring knowledge of what it is to be human and-transgressive.-Paula FoxThese are marvelous stories of experience and have the ripeness of wry, hard-won wisdom.-Phillip LopateBingham has the eye to see where a story lives, the heart to understand it, and the voice-and craft-to tell it.-Robin MorganIn her wise and sexy new collection, Sallie Bingham examines modern-day transgressions in affairs of the heart. She offers up a mA(c)nage A trois, an older woman's affair with a student, a painter who uses his age as an excuse to behave indecorously. But the reader quickly discovers the real transgressions are those of the self against the self.
