Book Review: 'Lucky Girls'

In Lucky Girls, a debut collection of short stories by Nell Freudenberger, readers follow young women from India to Vietnam and beyond. In long, complex stories, Freudenberger's characters negotiate confusion, ignorance and loss as they come of age in exotic locales. Alan Cheuse critiques the latest effort from a writer whose career began just two years ago.
