"In this, Hilary Masters third story collection, things are not usually what they seem. In the title story a man attending a conference visits the neighborhood where he grew up and finds it desolate, menacing, despite its familiarity. In "The Italian Grammar," the winner of a Balch Prize, a mid-life academic, living on the edge of the New York literati, recognizes his own stunted ambitions in a moment of quiet, devastating understanding. And in "The Catch" a man on holiday in Ireland to get in touch with his roots witnesses an accidental drowning and is released from his own suffocating past."--Jacket
