The stories are set in Vietnam, Washington, The Midwest, and Europe, and are mostly about journalists, politicians, and diplomats who lead lives of public consequence and private passion. Just sets himself firmly in the American realist short-story tradition of Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and O'Hara. The volume includes two novellas. ISBN 0-395-53756-8 : $22.95.
