Summary
A collection of eight sharply imaginative short stories that focus on women's relationships with their bodies, their lovers, their female friends and their health. An overweight cubicle worker takes a diet pill and loses forty pounds in eight hours; newly thin, her relationships with other women begin to change. A bossy stay-at-home mom's husband leaves her for a younger woman, and while she's trying to make sense of her suddenly altered life, she has an otherworldly experience. A young therapist struggles to face her terminal cancer diagnosis as her body slowly gives out. While on vacation in Italy, a successful copy editor who wants to escape from her life follows a stranger home
