Ideas of Heaven: A Ring of Stories

published by Norton 2004, paperback 2005

Beset by love and longings, this array of characters comes to see the ways “sex and religion [are] always fighting over the same ground…each running into the breach left by the other.” With settings as diverse as modern New York, Renaissance Venice, and the late-nineteenth-century China of missionaries, Silber pioneers in this collection her method of letting a minor element in one story become major in the next.
