These ten wise, extraordinary tales explore the mysteries of love and our complex desire for connection. Spanning wide and diverse geographies--America, Nepal, South Africa, Germany--they showcase Guterson's gifts for psychological nuance, emotional suspense, and evocation of the natural world.
In these pages, we meet, among others, a lonely landlord trying to reach out to his tenants; a middle-aged widower looking for love online; an American Jew traveling to Berlin to confront his haunted past. Celebrating the surprises that lurk within the dramas of our daily lives, "Problems with People" marks the return of a contemporary American master to the form that launched his literary career.
