This book was so dead-on in its description of the anxieties of daily life -- in social life, at work, and in relationships -- that it was unfailingly interesting. But it failed to hit the mark on an emotional level, in part because so many of these short stories didn't resolve the tension they introduce. To me, even difficult times in our personal lives have redeeming qualities and light moments. This book seemed to lack just those. I'd be interested to see what comes next from this author, though!
