Description
This collection of stories about love and privacy is serious, funny, tender, and alive with the elegance and spirit that characterize Laurie Colwin's work. In these stories, the reader moves among young men and women: pianists, historians, book illustrators, architects; women who are composed and inimitably sassy; and men who are magnetic, adventurous in love, or fiendishly elusive. They are people who are experiencing, often for the first time, the starting, enriching, and maddening complications of adult life.

display_descriptionThirteen tales of happiness, heartbreak, and desire from the acclaimed author of Home Cooking and Happy All the Time In the title story of this elegant and insightful collection, a book illustrator meets the man of her dreams and struggles to say good-bye to her old self: the perfect houseguest who delighted in the dinner parties of her married friends and always went home alone. "A Mythological Subject" is the tale of an adulterous affair that arrives unexpected and unwanted, like a natural disaster, but is no mistake. In "The Smile Beneath the Smile," Rachel Manheim, an ardent and intelligent young woman, must finally decide what to do about her unavailable lover. "A Girl Skating" is a delicate and haunting portrait of the unbridgeable divide between life and art, poetry and nature. The warmth, humor, and emotional honesty that characterize Laurie Colwin's writing are on full display in The Lone Pilgrim. Each of these sublime stories is a celebration not just of Colwin's remarkable talent, but of the beautiful mysteries of the human heart. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Laurie Colwin including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author's estate.
