From the acclaimed author of Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage and the memoir W-3, a trio of novellas about three women's bold exploration of the desire for belonging as it comes into conflict with the fulfillment of our individual selves. With an introduction by Rumaan Alam.


Over the past several years, A Public Space has brought the work of Bette Howland back into print. First published in 1983, Things to Come and Go is her final book, and a showcase of her stunning talent--the razor-sharp observations, the elusive narrators, the language at once experimental and classical.


Nearly forty years later, it's writing that "feel[s] revelatory and imperative to the work we might all be trying to make next" (Lynn Steger Strong).
