Twenty years ago, Ray Campbell, now a cautious risk- management
consultant, was a well-intentioned aid worker dedicated to
improving conditions in Lubanda, a newly independent African
country. He is forced to reconsider that year of living dangerously

ever truly loved and whose fate he'd sealed in a moment of grievous
In the title story, a white aspiring professor is convinced she is being followed. No need to panic--she has a handgun stowed away in her purse, just in case. But when she turns to confront her black male shadow, the situation isn't what she expects. In "The Rescuer," a promising graduate student detours to inner-city Trenton, New Jersey, to save her brother from a downward spiral. But she soon finds out there may be more to his world than to hers. And in "The Last Man of Letters," the world-renowned author X embarks on a final grand tour of Europe. He has money, fame, but not a whole lot of manners. A little thing like etiquette couldn't bring a man like X down, could it? In these biting and beautiful pieces, Oates confronts, one by one, the demons within us, demonstrating that sometimes, it's not the human side that wins out.
