The Things We Do for Women by Seth Johnson

Things We Do For Women

Seth Johnson’s debut story collection comprises twelve linked tales set in Kentucky against the backdrop of the disintegration of a young marriage. A man on the run hides out at a boarding house owned by a paraplegic woman whose uncle’s dog gives birth with an ease that impresses the observers of this ordinary event. A young man confesses his extramarital affairs to his mother. A housewife attends the funeral of a young woman whom she never knew. In precise, evocative prose, The Things We Do for Women explores the perpetual desire for love and the obstacles to obtaining it.
