5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive, July 17, 2011






 I am not surprised to see so many positive reviews for this collection - I could hardly put it down. The stories ranged from laugh out loud funny to touching. Great collection, highly recommend.

By E. Hirsch:
Not every reader that purchases the book leaves a review, but there are more than 70 reviews in amazon.com alone. Hundreds of reviews in other sites. This brief book is deceptively simple; in two stories I found rhetorical figures of thought that one hardly sees in contemporary fiction; for example: in chapter 11 -
"For a moment my whole world came crashing down on me; out of the debris came pain, of the pain came hurt, of the hurt came paralysis, of the paralysis came numbness, of the numbness came total eclipse of the soul."
E. Hirsch. Read it and be on the lookout for fine writing!
