Calamity and Other Stories

(2005)
A collection of stories by

 

"Few writers I know speak... with such clear-eyed compassion, such quiet humor and grace."
Jhumpa Lahiri


Twelve luminous stories alive with friendship and secrets introduce a remarkable writer. Daphne Kalotay's characters confront regrets and unrealized hopes in tales tinged with gentle humor. A newly independent woman finds herself in bed with an ex-husband of long ago. A little girl gets a surprising glimpse into adulthood when she catches her mother in a moment of uninhibited pleasure. A thirteen-year-old boy contends with the unwanted attentions of a younger girl. And for two older women, a tie formed in their youth sustains them through varied twists of fate. These are dazzling intertwined tales of love, failure, and the comedy of human relationships.
