Goodbye Without Leaving by Laurie Colwin

Goodbye Without Leaving by Laurie Colwin. 1990 Poseidon Press, first edition, 253 pages. In a retrospective on Laurie Colwin in the New York Times: "Colwin suggests that our lives are never definitively settled, but evolve as a series of glittering, memorable shards. Her fiction reflects her sense of the shadow around the edges that haunts even our moments of most buoyant, intense delight." Goodbye was Colwin's eighth novel.
