Book Synopsis

Stories in this collection of fiction range from fish-in-a-box ("Carol's Aquarium") to a tense prison visit ("Visiting Hour") to a hotel worker who breaks into the room of a soldier on R&R ("They Three at Once Were One") to the most uptight couple in the world discovering earthy, passionate lust ("Mexican Blanket").
