short, quick stories that are so simply stated to make them cinematic in the way that a cassavetes film slows down reality and allows its characters to live each and every moment in full public view. the emotions seem both strong and weak, which is what makes them so powerful. i liked this book a lot.

It’s always slightly uncomfortable when a friend introduces you to his or her ‘creative work,’ something that occurs quite frequently when you’re living in Austin, Texas.

The stories in this one are quick, and certainly aren't swinging for the fences. In today's hyper-sped, hyper-hyped world you have to take a deep breath before you crack open these vignettes of guys (and some gals) who aren't going to change the world. So take a breath, turn off your ringer, and check out "Infinity Gauntlet" or "Driver's License." bonus for me?

Form following function, function following form. An uncomortable stuntedness in length, character, feeling. Amidst that stuntedness the stories are hard to like, exactly, though enjoyment in that sense is perhaps beside the point, that point being discomfort. They are good stories and well done.

A selection of very short stories - perhaps just a few 100 words each. The author has an uncanny ability to vividly bring characters and situations alive using a very few carefully chosen words. Recommended.

Yes! Sanders has honed in on a simple style, with much to read between the lines. Story after story, you realize just how much he has perfected his voice. Modern, humorous, and easy to read - but not for a lack of seasoned emotional content. Just wait for it.

These are really enriching stories that unfold the more I read and think about them. My favorite is "Driver's License," but my favorites change quickly and all the stories are great.

my favorite story was "You Have a Crush on Kellz", that story alone is worth reading the book
