Indulge yourself in (or rediscover!) the domestic fiction of renowned author Hilma Wolitzer through this collection of short stories originally published in magazines of the 1960s and 70s. Each story is a lyrical study of a woman's autonomy—or lack thereof—in the home. In the title story, the narrator silently commiserates with a mother who breaks down in the supermarket and is discomfited by the attempts of other shoppers to summon her husband. Interlinked stories examine the intricacies of the relationship between Paulette and her husband Howard, who disappoints her as frequently as he redeems himself— and they return as older versions of themselves in a new story from 2020. Written with a self-aware wryness, Hilma Wolitzer is at once sharp-witted, somber, and refreshingly funny. (RR)
