I chose the book based on the first couple pages of the first short story and to be honest I thought the stories were going to be a lot more engaging than they were. Most are poignant, sad looks at "heartland" Americana, but perhaps there wasn't enough time in these vignettes to empathize with the characters. I often just wanted to skip ahead to the next story but none of them ended up really grabbing me. Ford writes very well so I can't fault the book on its own merits, but maybe just the subject material wasn't what I was looking for when I picked it up.
