Tess Slesinger (16 July 1905 – 21 February 1945) was an American writer and screenwriter and a member of the New York intellectual scene. She was born as Theresa Slesinger in New York, as the fourth child of Anthony Slesinger, a Hungarian-born dress manufacturer, and Augusta (Singer) Slesinger, a welfare worker who later (after 1931) became a prominent psychoanalyst. Her family was Jewish. She was the younger sister of three brothers, including Stephen Slesinger, later the creator of Red Ryder

She had learned the modernist tricks without being overwhelmed by them, so that her own version of the interior monologue showed an effortless brilliance and speed. Of course, the interior monologue is in part a satirical tool: characters can be exposed from within. Miss Slesinger is admirable, throughout her book, in rejecting the prettiness which forms the first real temptation of a short-story writer. This temptation means, of course, creating a mood, writing a shorthand novel in which the content is all gentle implication and muzziness. But Miss Slesinger would rather get down to business, flinging her readers straight to the middle of the action.

I happened upon this collection of short stories while wandering the stacks of my college library during my freshman year at UW Eau Claire. In an attempt to avoid studying for final exams, I began browsing its pages and quickly fell in love with Slesinger's writing style. The title story hit all the right notes as I was nursing a broken heart at the time and was quite certain no one else had ever felt the same (ah, the drama of youth!). I purchased it a few years ago and it's one of those books I read annually without fail.
