    New York in den 40er Jahren - von den schillernden Nachtclubs in Manhattan zu der dröhnenden Marinewerft in Brooklyn. Krieg liegt in der ölgetränkten, rauchigen Luft. Die Männer sind an der Front, nun stehen die Frauen in der Fabrik. Doch die junge Anna verfolgt beharrlich ihren Traum: Sie will Marinetaucherin werden. Mutig schwimmt sie gegen den Strom und taucht unter die gigantischen Kriegsschiffe an den Docks. Allein die Gedanken an ihren verschwundenen Vater vermögen es, sie in noch unbekanntere Tiefen zu ziehen.

    Reconstructive facial surgery after a car crash so alters Manhattan model Charlotte that, within the fashion world, where one's look is oneself, she is unrecognisable. Seeking a new image, Charlotte engages in an Internet experiment that may both save and damn her. As her story eerily converges with that of a plain, unhappy teenager - another Charlotte - it raises tantalising questions about identity and reality in contemporary Western culture.

    These 11 masterful stories - the first collection from acclaimed author Jennifer Egan - deal with loneliness and longing, regret and desire. Egan's characters, models and housewives, bankers and schoolgirls, are united by their search for something outside their own realm of experience. They set out from locations as exotic as China and Bora Bora, as cosmopolitan as downtown Manhattan, or as familiar as suburban Illinois to seek their own transformations.
