In The Intelligence of Wild Things, a woman from Sacramento visits her brother in Vermont to inform him that back in Calcutta their mother is dying. And in the title story, a painter looks to ancient myth and the example of her grandmother for help in navigating her first real crisis of faith.Kwing, compassionate and expertly rendered, the stories in <b>The Unkwn Errors of Our Lives</b><i></i>depict the eternal struggle to find a balance between the pull of home and the allure of change.
