Summary
A collection of ten stories that "plunge us into the fierce, troubled hearts of characters defined by the desire to escape the past or else to plumb its depths. The deadbeat father of a pregnant teenager tries to transform his life by playing the role of Jesus in a bloody penitential Passion. A young man discovers that his estranged father and a boa constrictor have been squatting in his grandmother's empty house. A lonely retiree new to Santa Fe becomes obsessed with her housekeeper ... Always hopeful, these stories chart the passions and obligations of family life, exploring themes of race, class, and coming-of-age" --Amazon.com
