Summary
"The characters in these stories are at a point in life where they are waiting for the next thing to happen to them. In "Arlene" we meet a single woman who tries to exorcise (literally) the spirit of her suicidal downstairs neighbor, and ends up by finding her more compelling dead than she was alive; in "Sweethearts" we see a couple who are renovating a London townhouse while they tear down their relationship. There is a young man in "The Kindness of Strangers" who allows himself to be picked up in a bar, with very pecuilar results, and there is Anna in the title story, who frees herself from self-doubt and rejection by a single decisive act of dishonesty"--Publisher description
