In the title story, an unhappily married couple find their print of an orange fish brings them newfound harmony as they join other owner of the print who gather to extol the miraculous powers of ?fishness.? ?Chemistry? describes a group of young musicians drawn briefly into an impenetrable circle of love. And in ?Hazel,? a middle-aged woman finally comes into her own as a sales rep for a line of kitchen products. The Orange Fish is a collection full of wit and compassion, a series of stories to be read and reread and savored.
