Paula Bomer is a dangerous writer. The short stories in her debut collection are subversive portraits of the modern American family. From a husband who traces his internal crisis to witnessing his wife giving birth, to a mother who forces her young son on a rainy walk through a cemetery as she contemplates the detritus of her marriage, Bomer s characters are hauntingly familiar. Their fear and rage, their failures and desires are our own.

I was very disappointed by this; I had been looking forward to it for such a long time. It was just so depressing. Now, my book club will tell you that I usually love books about unhappy people (I know I am weird), but unhappy and unlikable was too much. Also, the editing was awful. I don't know if it is just the e book version, but whole sentences were spliced together or deleted or repeated.
