This is a great book to pick up over a cup of coffee as the stories are short and entertaining. Brian Wilson's short stories have been described as being like a box of chocolates, each one being delightful but quite different. Some of the stories are humorous, while others are thought provoking, and there is a story for everyone. Hold on tight as Wilson takes you on a jour ...more

For example, “Hair” nails those embarrassing moments when you put your whole foot in your mouth. “Cup of Tea Anyone” is unforgettable with its grotesque reflections on a too-long-married couple’s daily life and a shocking twist at the end. I laughed out loud at the last line of “The Writer”—can’t say more without giving a spoiler. And I ...more

An excellent collection of short stories that held my attention from beginning to end. Set in different countries, cities and towns, and across different time periods, they reveal a lot about human nature and the quirky things that happen in real life. Well worth reading.
