A San Francisco Chronicle and NPR Best Book of the Year

The author of the acclaimed memoir The Suicide Index returns with a virtuosic collection of stories, each a stirring parable of the power of love and the impossibility of understanding it. Spanning centuries and continents, from eighteenth-century Vienna to contemporary America, Joan Wickersham shows, with uncanny exactitude, how we never really know what’s in someone else’s heart—or in our own.

Editorial reviews (1 review)


Some narratives feel contrived, a series of stunts that show their seams. Still, that’s the danger of building a book around a concept: Sometimes the construct overwhelms the material.
