Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Comprising stories from other volumes as well as never-before-published tales, this collection of short stories mixes wit with warmth. Anderson's rich characters are set against a range of locations and time periods, from New Zealand's country farms of the mid-20th century to contemporary hair salons and everything in between.
