Among the Names by Maxine Chernoff

Excerpts | Ordering Info

Among the Names clicks along, making fast connections, which in turn create a vast and layered network-in short, an economy. Exploring the complexities of "the gift," Chernoff's is an economy of the uncanny-each exchange is strikingly new, yet many also make you remember, while others make you recognize connections that would otherwise have remained just out of reach. It's a collection that makes things spring to sight.
