This is a book of two stories. The first one is about a couple that have been robbed of all of their belingings that they didn't have with them when they went to the opera. And I do mean all of them. They come home to a appertment missing most everything one could possibly take: carpeting, appliences small and large, even the toliet paper on the hanger. It then deals with how this affects or doesn't affect their lifes.
The next story is about a older lady that lives in her van. It is told by the man who's yard she has parked it in.
