Rate this:
A student plagiarizes her first university essay and ends up navigating a web of her own lies, while comically and rather ingeniously managing her professor's expectations. A dinner party riddled with tension-filled moments and questions of the validity of a bobcat-related injury concludes on a surprising note with an unexpected visitor. At turns wry, heartbreaking, wise, unexpected, and tender, the stories in this collection mark the arrival of an astonishing new talent. For fans of Jonathan Franzen, David Bezmozgis, and Miriam Toews.

"This richly detailed collection of stories ranges all over the world, from Manhattan to Nepal just in the title story alone. Each told from a first-person perspective, the stories ruminate on love and infidelity, apathy and pride; though they're set mainly in colleges and universities, their appeal won't be limited only to those who inhabit such worlds. Providing humour even in the darkest situations, this collection contains "gorgeously crafted, scintillating stories [that] are imaginative and incisive, funny and profound" (Booklist)."
