Women in Their Beds [PDF]

by Gina Berriault
"Things come and go. I figure they go more often than they come. Not much came my way but I lost more than I had. If you see what I mean." {from "The Overcoat"}

"How could a man change like that? His entire body aware of her, even the soles of his feet against her feet, and then be that person no more? And why was it she could not tell anybody of what it did to her, though it sat day and night in her mind?" {from "Myra"}

I have an uncanny knack for picking things to read that mirror my emotions. Perhaps, when I bought this book years ago in Colorado but haven't read until now, I had read the dust jacket and knew that this collection of short stories are about people dealing with loss and the effects that lost has had on them for the rest of their lives. So unconsciously, perhaps, I decided to read this book now to get a sense of how lonely creatures deal with the fact that for a short time they were a little less lonely, only to come back to the fact that they will remain lonely for the rest of their lives, even if they surround themselves again with people and animals in an effort to trump the loneliness they are bound to travel life with. Loneliness. Reading about how you're not the first and won't be the last person to feel this wrenching pain doesn't help coping with it any better.
