More important, though, is the territory these stories present along the backroads of the human heart. The stories in The Romantic Road deal gently but unflinchingly with big and important issues, such as the lingering effects of the Holocaust- marriages in trouble- aging, illness (from impotence to cancer), and death. They uncover family secrets like incest and embarrassing genealogy. They present the female experience from girlhood to maturity and beyond.This is an important collection of stories that are also compassionate, entertaining, and beautifully told.
