A fascinating premise, five perfectly done Hemingway stories embedded in the novel, careful scene construction and precise writing. The plot is low-key and moves at a leisurely pace, with humor but without many thrills. In the end it's about people living quiet lives in Los Angeles, a look at their strangenesses, their ways of loving each other, and the blurry lines they draw between what's real and what's imagined.
