A middle-aged piano teacher whose married lover returned to
his wife after 16 years looks the other way when her prodigy steals from her—preferring
his dishonesty to the void his absence would create. In 10 elegiac tales
probing the human condition, a short-story virtuoso, who passed away in 2016,
bequeaths a poignant coda.
