In Strangers in the House, Dorothy Gallagher takes us into her adult life and tells us honest, funny, and highly distinctive stories about love, friendship, and responsibilities - stories about ordinary life.
Here, among other people and problems, we encounter a man who carries around brass knuckles, hoping to catch the lover Gallagher prefers to him - and whose behavior unexpectedly mirrors Gallagher's own; the bizarre events that surround the disappearance of a woman with ties to both the Communist Party and Gallagher's family; and the treachery of a trusted employee who is "bad with money" in more ways than one. The fragility of friendships, the fickleness of love, the marital crisis brought on by chronic illness - Gallagher dramatizes these universal themes.
