Plot

Bringing together eight previously published stories the bestselling author of The Bird Artist explores the lives of a range of characters who share a sense of loneliness and obsession. In the title story Tokyo-born Mrs. Moro is driven every day by her chauffeur, Tuttle Albers, so that she can walk the beach in hope of seeing white pelicans while her driver reads the Japanese authors she lends him and falls in love with a zoologist; in 'Jenny Aloo' an Eskimo woman believes her missing son's soul is trapped inside a jukebox; and in 'Kiss in the Hotel Joseph Conrad' the narrator keeps track of a woman by whom he once spurned for nearly a decade while everything around him changes.
