I got this softcover at a local thrift shop. (I thought the author's name sounded exotic; turns out she's from New England!) It's a collection of stories, and from the cover I'd hoped for science fiction, but these seemed to be somewhat-aimless tales of characters coping with life in various ways. Some of them were quirky enough to hold my interest for a while, but I seldom found the stories to pay off in a way that satisfied me. One that I did like was "The Beach Boy," a leisurely look at a disintegrating relationship - oddly enough, it reminded me of some of Ray Bradbury's tales of similar couples-on-vacation-annoying-each-other, though I found his prose more enjoyable.
