Objects of Desire, by Clare Sestanovich

Staff Pick

Sestanovich's richly observed stories give us both the quiet wonders of seemingly ordinary moments and the broader outlines of womanhood in modern life. Focusing on women's inner lives, and particularly on the characters' longings, Sestanovich sensitively portrays sexual desire, but also explores a less easily articulated longing for more, one often punctuated by a sense of ennui. Through a combination of nuanced and sophisticated prose and abrupt endings, Sestanovich has crafted short fictions with a lasting emotional effect, giving us the sense that we were merely eavesdropping on these women's lives.
