short, quick stories that are so simply stated to make them cinematic in the way that a cassavetes film slows down reality and allows its characters to live each and every moment in full public view. the emotions seem both strong and weak, which is what makes them so powerful. i liked this book a lot.

It’s always slightly uncomfortable when a friend introduces you to his or her ‘creative work,’ something that occurs quite frequently when you’re living in Austin, Texas. I have my own fair share of ‘creative’ friends, and although I’m often genuinely impressed by their creations, over the years I find myself hoping a bit too often that my (often harsh, judgmental) opinion of the friend’s particular work won’t prevent me from saying ‘oh, that’s…awesome’ without at least a scrap of honesty.

A selection of very short stories - perhaps just a few 100 words each. The author has an uncanny ability to vividly bring characters and situations alive using a very few carefully chosen words. Recommended.

The stories in this one are quick, and certainly aren't swinging for the fences. In today's hyper-sped, hyper-hyped world you have to take a deep breath before you crack open these vignettes of guys (and some gals) who aren't going to change the world. So take a breath, turn off your ringer, and check out "Infinity Gauntlet" or "Driver's License." bonus for me? Reminded me of how glad I am to be beyond my 20s (re the characters in the stories -- i know nothing about Timothy Willis Sanders -- and ...more

These stories are too short for pretense. The scenarios aren't enviable or pitiful, they just stand on their own. Short vignettes of human life. Still, there's something to be said in their honesty. I'll read these stories again. Partially because they're short and it would be super easy to do. Partially there's a truth to them.

Form following function, function following form. An uncomortable stuntedness in length, character, feeling. Amidst that stuntedness the stories are hard to like, exactly, though enjoyment in that sense is perhaps beside the point, that point being discomfort. They are good stories and well done.

Yes! Sanders has honed in on a simple style, with much to read between the lines. Story after story, you realize just how much he has perfected his voice. Modern, humorous, and easy to read - but not for a lack of seasoned emotional content. Just wait for it.

These are really enriching stories that unfold the more I read and think about them. My favorite is "Driver's License," but my favorites change quickly and all the stories are great.

my favorite story was "You Have a Crush on Kellz", that story alone is worth reading the book
Alb
A bold, fresh voice! I highly recommend these well crafted, entertaining stories.

A beautiful, all-too-brief book.
