The subtitle of this book is "Stories." I do not think that is a fair description of what this book contains. A few pieces classify as stories, but most of the writing feels more like sketches from an author's journal. There are a few poems scattered throughout and I suppose some of the "stories" (which are often less than a page or merely a paragraph long) could be considered prose poems. There is a connecting theme of aging men making bad decisions and living with regret, and the book almost works as a literary collage. However, ultimately I found it hard to keep interest in this collection. It was much easier to put this book down than it was to pick it back up.
