In these seven linked stories, Lucy Honig—a winner of the prestigious Drue Heinz Literature Prize whose stories have appeared in two O. Henry Prize collections and in Best American Short Stories —demonstrates artistic agility equal to memory’s effortless leaps back and forth in time. In one story a pair of ten-year-old cousins, enamored of each other, converse in an invented language while spying on a young neighbor who lights her menorah every evening stark naked. “The Rumor” traces the course of an archaic rumor about Jewish shopkeepers in a provincial French city as massive student protests roil Paris a few kilometers away. A writer alienated from the rampant careerism at an artists’ colony befriends a fellow writer with whom she can communicate only in halting French, his second language and hers; together they visit nearby locales of her rural childhood. On a road trip, a loving, prickly daughter finds the childhood squabbles of her elderly mother and aunt not at all mellowed by time. A middle-aged American on a stopover in Paris runs into a ravaged French artist with whom she had a troubled affair years earlier.
