Improvement by Joan Silber (Counterpoint)

"Without fuss or flourishes, Joan Silber weaves a remarkably patterned tapestry connecting strangers from around the world to a central tragic car accident. The writing here is funny and down-to-earth, the characters are recognizably fallible, and the message is quietly profound: We are not ever really alone, however lonely we feel."
—The Wall Street Journal, 1 of 10 top fiction titles of 2017

Also won National Book Critics Award of Fiction and is nominated for the PEN/Faulkner Award
