I read the author's Modern Love essay in the New York Times ( and found it so touching and poignant that I sought out his most recent book. It's five pretty good short stories, but nothing that'll be particularly memorable or worth a reread later. If you do read it, skip the "About the author," "About the book," and all those sections at the end. The author comes off as eccentric and obnoxious, which, for me, takes away from the stories.
