Love pangs, a favorite subject of the author, take on a new urgency as earthquakes, illnesses, lost wallets, and deaths of distant friends besiege his aging heroes and heroines. One man loves his wifes twin, and several men love the imagined bliss of their pasts; one woman takes an impotent lover, and another must administer her fathers death. Bourgeois comforts and youthful convictions are tenderly seen as certain to erode: Man, as one of these stories concludes, was not meant to abide in paradise.
