Literary stories of the slice-of-life variety. They seemed flawless to me, poised perfectly at the half-way point between poignancy and irony. Is this because I normally only read horror stories? I think they're genuinely very good, Wolff's stories.

I think it must have been more then 20 years since I bought this one from the sale rack at LundeQ bookstore in Uppsala. I was studying literature but sometimes the classics, the Homer and Vergil and Materlink and Schiller and Byrons just felt like too much. Too many expressions and I longed to sink into something ordinary. Something a bit like home even though the home here is mainly American suburbs I could still relate.
