The first story, “Three Exhausting Weeks” reveals much of the details of their relationship. Anna is a whirlwind of ideas. Hanks wrote, “Anna was still very pretty. She never lost her lean, rope-taut body of a triathlete, which, in fact, she had been. For a day, I showed her some available spaces, none of which she wanted for reasons that made little sense to me. I could tell she was just as driven, focused, and tightly wound as she had been in [college]. She had too keen an eye for the smallest of details and left no stones unturned, uninspected, unrecorded, or unreplaced if they needed replacing. Adult Anna was no more my type than Teen Anna had been” (5-6). They became a couple.
