There are only two categories of people in the world: Lost and found. The stories in this collection explore the process of individual journeys between these categories: Love that isolates and love that redeems, reconciliation with the self and others, the death of innocence, betrayal by the natural and human worlds, salvation through the transcendent. In essence, they are about falling into and out of grace, something human beings do as regularly as we breathe. (And for comic relief, there’s a story featuring a talking cat.)
