A Compendium of Skirts: Fiction
ISBN: 0786712627

Carroll & Graf. 2004

Warmhearted humor, quirky relationships, and playful turns of plot distinguish this charming story collection from Phyllis Moore. So do the somewhat frivolous, somewhat valiant, and mostly misguided women of Moore's fractured world. Beautifully written and immediately accessible, A Compendium of Skirts is a moving, wise, and heartwarming book about life and love in our time. Poignant, mischievous, and very, very funny, Phyllis Moore's fiction debut limns the curious, confounded lives of women in flux.
