Recommended to Jack by: the New York Times
Read in April, 2009

Only read about half of the stories in this collection but really liked them all. The bizarre situations presented here (laughing parties, a boy who visits a girl in pitch darkness every day for a year) were shot through with forbidden excitement and, yes, danger. Very comparable to the work of Haruki Murakami. I will probably buy a copy of this so that I have it on hand the next time I want some exciting short fiction.
