This is an ecclectic mix of fiction and non-fiction, all excerpts from longer works. Each one was a powerful piece of reading in itself. It reminded me of being in high school when your favorite teacher would pull out a short chapter from his favorite author and watch it set your brain on fire. Really well chosen and compiled and though I finished it months ago I find myself thinking about several of the pieces over and over again.
