Recommended for: Sara Ray Beeman
Read in July, 2007

Disturbing and satisfyingly unsatisfying. He builds a lot of dramatic tension, then resolves it - or doesn't - or sort of does - in unexpected ways. He explores and explodes the social mores of Europeans of his time (1920s-1950s). Warning: there are no happy endings in these stories - just less disastrous ones.
