Summary
An old record player; an unposted letter; a pair of pearl earrings, never purchased: tokens, gifts, and objects lost or left behind, desired or not wanted at all are the starting points for the stories in Worldly Goods. Alice Peterson shows in these stories that ownership is both more and less than possession, for through objects we not only express identity, we also seek to communicate
