The Lone Pilgrim
In this dazzling collection of stories, Laurie Colwin masterfully weaves together tales of love--and desire--in all its forms. The Lone Pilgrim explores the universal complications of the heart--and the mysteries of being fully human in the world. In these thirteen stories, a book illustrator is enamored with her publisher, as she pines for her previous lover; a photographer recovering from her second marriage in far-off Inverness, Scotland, befriends a college student new to romance; two academics conducting a long distance affair are reunited, only to find that their circumstances have changed dramatically; and the perpetually stoned young wife of a popular college professor struggles to tell her husband that she's been high since the day they met. Humorous, tender, and moving, The Lone Pilgrim is the work of a master of the short story form.
