Improvement description

Joan Silber’s latest novel, Improvement, had The Washington Post claim her as America’s own Alice Munro. A beautifully rendered magical mystery ride across centuries, cultures and continents, it poses the questions: Which of our choices (intended or not) have consequences over time? How fixable is the irrevocable? Improvement introduces us to a glorious patchwork of portraits, a disparate, delightful ensemble that we follow along their ultimately interwoven trajectories, linked by their limits and their truths, and the destinies they have worked so hard to construct.
