I usually avoid short stories, because I want a fuller picture of the characters and a longer lasting read. I began this when I was desperate for something not too silly or dumb, not too full of the horrors of real life, and well written. After reading 7 of the 10 stories, I had to stop and write this review, because I want to tell people how great this book is. The characters and the stories are full of meaning that relates to me and the things I see happening around me in this world of horrible personal stories. But it isn't too horrifying to read, it is enjoyable and entertaining, creative and unique, but it makes you feel deeply the reality of now. Several of the first stories have rather weird plot lines. Every story I have read so far is excellent. I can't wait to try his other books.
