1976, two couples face a complicated grief when one of the four dies. In Ranch Girl, the college-bound daughter of a ranch foreman must choose which adult world she wants to occupy. In A Stakes Horse, a woman confronts risk and loss at the racetrack and at home. And in Aqua Boulevard -- winner of the 2001 Aga Khan Prize for Fiction -- an elderly Parisian confronts his mortality.
