ONE WAY OR ANOTHER introduces Peter Cameron as an extraordinary writer, one distinguished not only by his prose, which is always abundantly witty and pitch-perfect, but also by a rare generosity of heart.

Here characters act on lies they spin to protect themselves, or to protect others

Here characters act on lies they spin to protect themselves, or to protect others. In What Do People Do All Day?, a child gamely stalls a father’s confession of adultery. The heroine of Fast Forward tells her dying mother that she’s engaged-a lie designed to give the old woman a final few days of happiness.

I'm very glad to find the original book I have read twenty years ago in Japanese.
The shop often informed me of its shipping condition to Japan.
I met again the favorite book four weeks after my purchase order.
ANYBOOK is an excellent shop which is able to deal overseas order.

Although I prefer Peter Cameron's novels (Leap Year, The Weekend, Andorra, The City of Your Final Destination), he first made a name for himself in the mid-1980s with wistful short stories. Half the contents of this, his first book, were published in the _New Yorker_. Somewhat offbeat children and young adults of both sex experience the oddness of adults and the complicated relations among the adults they observe who are dying or have survived divorce, or are thinking about getting married. Not much happens and (as with many contemporary literary stories) the stories tend to stop rather than be wrapped up. Life and its uncertainties will go on for the somewhat perplexed, somewhat perplexing and never-fulfilled characters.
Almost every story has an observation or dialogue that makes me laugh out loud. My favorites are two stories about young New Yorkers visiting relatives in Maine with a possible marriage partner ("Fast Forward" and "Nuptials and Heathens," the latter with the best absurd line in the book) and one about a young woman who has to pass calculus to begin Columbia MBA program in the fall ("Fear of Math"), though I was not sorry to have read any of the fourteen stories.
