Almost a caricature of the male style, full of clipped dialogue and supposedly telling detail, hinting at unmentioned depths. But I'm left with the sense that what you see is what you get, and that there's not much there under the shallow surface.

Roland Martinez It's what the characters aren't saying that makes the stories so great.


Cdrueallen Is that like an author saying it's what they didn't put in their novel that makes it a masterpiece? If so, I could easily write one. I only give a writer credit for what they manage to put into words.
