really liked it
Read in July, 2008

These stories are written simply but so effectively -- she says so much in so few words, and in words that sometimes seem distant and dispassionate but really aren't -- she stands back from her characters to show their traits, and we care about them, flaws and all. There are many moments of humor as well -- she has a dry, blunt style that made me chuckle quite a few times.
