What a wonderful collection of 4 short stories! I read them all in one day. There is a similar thread through all the stories as they are all told through the eyes of someone living a highly routine/disciplined/doing what's expected of you life while there is another character who they are observing who is living a much more care free existence and that contrast fascinates & confounds the main character. The settings and circumstances and ages of the two are different in each, but the explorations of those same themes 4 unique ways is very interesting and entertaining.
