Leaving the Neighborhood

The twelve stories in the award-winning collection Leaving the Neighborhood are variously concerned with departures -- physical, emotional, even philosophical. Yet few things in life are ever completely left behind. That which is unresolved remains. In each of these stories, men and women find themselves drawn into confrontations without knowing quite how they got there. As the consequences suddenly awaken their moral self-awareness, they face the task of recapturing and redefining the past in order to shape the future.
