Filled with the same poignant humor that has made Anne Tyler and Laurie Colwin famous, these wonderful short stories are finally back in print. Critically acclaimed when it was first published in 1987, Jenny and the Jaws of Life is a timeless collection of astonishing freshness and wit. In these remarkable stories, Willett's eccentric, complex characters think and do the unconventional. Soft, euphonic women gradually grow old; weak, unhappy men confront love and their own mortality; and abominable children desperately try to grow up with grace. With a unique voice and dry humor, Willett gives us a new insight into human existence, showing us those specific moments in relationships when life suddenly becomes visible.
