Synopsis

Featuring the two novellas: The Train Now Departing and When “The Mousetrap” Closes “Full of suspense and surprise. These carefully written little gems showcase Grimes at her best.”— Library Journal “Grimes has created a work of value here, a book that expands her art, her reputation—and possibly her audience.”— The Richmond-Times Dispatch “Atmospheric and chilling…Grimes [exhibits] a complete mastery of emotional nuance and [a] virtuoso treatment of the grayest coloration.”— The Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN) “Intelligent…Merits applause.”— The Toronto Star “As atmospherically evocative as [an] Edward Hopper painting.”— The Washington Post “An a cappella novella, each note strong and noncompetitive.”— Los Angeles Times “Grimes once again demonstrates her keen eye for character. Both of these languidly paced novellas focus on middle-aged women who long for respite from their narrow, disappointing lives and find it, at least temporarily, in the company of a man…Thoughtful, compelling, even dark stories—for readers more inclined toward investigating emotions than searching for armchair adventure.”— Booklist
