I really loved this little book! It starts out with 20 short stories and the second half of the book has 82 poems. I think the appeal to the fiction and poetry in this work has much to do with its diversity--it has a wonderful mix of genres and tackles many universal themes. The author also has a grsp on the sense of irony that is rare in my reading experience. Overall, Samuel R. Himes has written a really great book that I think most people would enjoy.
