Breath and Other Stories is the first time Terry Wolverton's short fiction, written over the past two decades, has been collected in one volume. In "Breath," a mother wrestles with how much freedom for her daughter might be too much. In "Sex Less," a lesbian contemplates her waning desire and what impact this might have on her identity. Wolverton brings us characters at pivotal moments in life.
