Interesting, inventive stories, set against the backdrop of paper mill workers, disillusioned journalists and failed teachers. My observations are that the male characters are frequently depressed, sometimes alcoholic and self-destructive, and that the women are disappointed and frequently leave the main characters. Recurring themes: "Why can't we be better people?" "What can you count on?" "What won't we do to hurt each other?"
