Because They Wanted to: Stories - Gaitskill, Mary, and Gaitskill

With complexity, compassion and truth, Gaitskill tells stories of people who want badly, without quite knowing what it is that they want or how to get it. Too often their wants conflict with their deeper needs and moral sense, and it is with this conflict that they struggle, sometimes ineptly, but always with fierce humanity.
