Summary
"In ten eerily up-to-date stories, Highsmith covers environmental degradation, apocalyptic disaster, political chaos, and religious conservatism, and leaves us haunted with 'afterimages that will tremble--but stay--in our minds' (The New Yorker)"--Page 4 of cover
Summary
The acclaimed author sets her spare incisive prose to work in a collection of short stories in which a range of contemporary characters are ultimately consumed by their own obsessions
