Moore's second short story collection (apart from the novel-esque _Anagrams_) is more subdued, less tricky and perky than _Self-Help_. Some of the emotional territory is familiar: in "Two Boys," a woman cheerfully juggles a pair of contrasting lovers; "The Jewish Hunter" details a teacher's affair with a sharp, Jewish guy who likes to hunt; and in the title story an unhappy housewife slowly makes plans to leave her husband. Well written, as always, but less distinctive than several of her other books.
