Yet through an intricate overlay of scenes, voices, fact, and myth, this expanding fiction finds its way also across continents and into earlier and future times and indeed the Earth, to reveal connections between the most disparate lives and systems of feeling and power. At its breathing heart, it plots the fugue like and field like densities of late-twentieth-century life.McElroy rests a global vision on two people, apartment-house neighbors who never quite meet.

Except, that is, in the population of others whose histories cross theirs believers and skeptics- lovers, friends, and hermits- children, parents, grandparents, avatars, and, apparently, angels. For Women and Men shows how the families through which we pass let one persons experience belong to that of many, so that we throw light on each other as if these kinships were refracted lives so real as to be reincarnate.

A mirror of manners, the book is also a meditation on the languages rich, ludicrous, exact, and also American in which we try to grasp the world were in. Along the kindred axes of separation and intimacy Women and Men extends the great line of twentieth-century innovative fiction.
