I really enjoyed the variety of unique characters in this book. They were all very authentic and interesting. I enjoyed learning more about the different cultures that make up the Boston of today and how those cultures interact with one another. Very well written and I highly recommend!

I'm not usually a reader of short stories but this was definitely a worthwhile escape. The stories were well written with some humour and lots of honesty. It is amazing that we can all live together but be such strangers to each other.
Engaging stories that represent much different segment's of Boston's population that I normally read about. Really enjoyed them.
