Moving and thought-provoking collection with strong characters.
I first found this collection after seeing it on a tweet. I totally enjoyed these gripping stories set on the east coast (Philadelphia, New York and New Jersey) filled with emotional conflicts especially those focusing on father-son relationships. If you read this book, please read to the end. My experience of short story collections is reading the first three and the last one but I had read every single one in this collection. The best story is the last, set in New Jersey in the 1950s about a boy who has had to leave his aunt to look after his dad. It left a lasting impression and I can remember all of it in detail still. These stories will stay with you long after you've read them.
