Family Dancing: Stories

Author: David Leavitt
Publisher: Mariner Books

Tender, unsettling, and amusing, these stories present families all unhappy in their own different ways. A mother who presides over her local Parents of Lesbians and Gays chapter has trouble accepting her son’s lover. A recently separated couple’s compulsion to maintain a twenty-six-year tradition seems to magnify futility. The New York Times called this collection “astonishing—funny, eloquent, and wise.”
