About the Book

Borenstein’s twelve stories are literary timepieces she fashioned during fi fty years of writing fi ction. Favoring the decades as nesting dolls for her interplay of imagination with memory, she evokes the ever-shifting spirit of the times through the lives of her characters, creatures of days swift-fl owing from time past through the evanescent present toward the somedays of an ever-receding horizon. Shadows of a growing distance from youthful dreams of invincibility lengthen across “the American century” as it grows older. Her Afterword celebrates the short story as self-replenishing for readers journeying on from a once-upon-a-time moment in American history.
