In the title story, a young woman begins a job on a construction siteafter leaving an abusive marriage. In "Crazy for You," two girls spy on a neighbor's sex life, while their own sexuality hovers in the distance. In "A Real Marriage," a college student marries a boyfriend to help him stay in the United States. In "The Fourth Fattest Girl at Cutting Horse Ranch," the daily life of a residential treatment center for eating disorders is disrupted by the arrival of a celebrity. The stories are set in Arizona, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and the Persian Gulf, andoften touch on themes of addiction, class, sexuality, and gender. What Counts as Love is a poignant, often funny collection that asks us to take it and its characters seriously"--
