Read in May, 2008

These linked short stories, about Perry Katzek and his array of friends who grew up in Chicago's fabled South Side, shows Dybek's range for voice, tone and lyricism. Dybek chronicles urban America through specific detailing of the environment and characters. Gritty humor, irony and song play throughout each of these South Side tales.
