This beautiful, semi-autobiographical collection of short stories delves into passion, alcoholism, work, family and death.  Berlin's keen observations about her life and the world around her are sparingly told but are so evocative she makes the smallest moments emotionally huge. She writes of recklessness and addiction with honesty and without shame, allowing the reader to be with her characters in all their complexity.  The 44 stories left me wanting more.
