Item description for Pronoun Music: Stories by Richard Cohen...
These are stories of family life told with a realism large enough to accommodate illusion, filled with characters whose inner lives are waiting in the shadows about to trip up the characters in their attempts to make sense of things. Most of these stories are about children and their parents. Sme of the children are grownups taking care of their elders; others are chronologically juvenile. At the turning point of youth to age, of singleness to marriage, they fight their way out of the webs of family and self with a degree of success equal finally to their gift for belief.
