A collection of compelling yet disturbing short stories set in Palo Alto, CA in the early 1990's. I particularly enjoyed reading these from the sense of place Franco creates as I'm familiar with the area and grew up not far away during the same era. Although this keen familiarly of place is not necessary to appreciate these intertwined stories that could easily take place in any US upper-middle class community. While reading I let my imagination run wild thinking of the stories I'd want to weave into a short story collection of my growing up years.
