Walking the dog may be one of life's more mundane activities, but in Irena Karafilly's fictional world, the ordinary only serves to illuminate large universal concerns. Set in various parts of the world, the stories in this compelling collection vividly dissect the intricate relations between characters of all ages as they grapple for answers to life's cruelties and the shifting dynamics of family life. There are stories about childhood, adolescence, old age; about marriage, parenthood, sibling rivalry, and more. It is Karafilly's gift to contemplate moral dilemmas with compassion and honesty, and an unflinching eye for the complex motivations of the human heart.
