There were some things Lillian Levinson couldn’t say, even to herself.

In the collected Giffort Street stories, you’ll enter seven gracious homes on an elm-lined street. You’ll meet self-absorbed parents who are unaware of how their trusted nanny is shaping their daughters’ lives, a decent young man uncomfortable being treated like a hero, a couple whose bedroom furniture nearly destroys their marriage, a man who realizes that the first neighbor he meets after he moves in is a bigot, and a family fighting the Vietnam War in their living room. In the title story, Harry Danced Divinely, the lack of a tea bag makes an elderly Jewish woman decide to teach her spoiled adult son a shocking public lesson.

The stories Harry Danced Divinely, An Authentic Hero, and Neighbors are exclusive to this book. A Perfect Nanny, The Queen Anne Bedroom Set, and the novella War Zone, which are available as singles, are also included.
