Synopsis

Synopsis

“Alice Adams writes with beautiful economy, an infallible sense of the telling detail.  Her place in the company of John Updike and Mary McCarthy.”  --San Francisco Chronicle
 
Alice Adams’ reputation as a short story writer continued to grow with each collection. The stories in her third collection revolve for the most part around the theme of travel.
 
The stories are about people in search of fresh experience, the inspiration of art, the pleasure of new relationships . . . people opening up to the accidental magic of a foreign place, or returning to scenes of childhood to forgive the past.
 
Included are “Alaska,”  “Time in Santa Fe,”  “Barcelona, “ “Molly’s Dog,”  “My First and Only House.”
