Maggie Estep follows her first novel with a set of linked stories that glimpse two women -- Jody, an unbalanced psychiatrist, and Katie, a lion tamer's daughter -- through the eyes of the men in their lives. Soft Maniacs (Simon & Schuster) probes the experience of people coping with an accelerated world they don't quite understand -- and how they find someone to share it with.

"Though their paths may be crooked, Estep's richly drawn characters do ultimately manage to reach a hard-won state of grace in this disturbing, audacious and unconventionally satisfying book." -Publishers Weekly
