"Like a good glass of wine, a good short story offers complexity and buzz. When you finish a good story, you take a moment to savor the experience, to let the resonance of truth ring a bit before it fades. I know that, for me, there's nothing like reading a last sentence that just nails the piece: reinforces a metaphor, adds weight to a conclusion. I can't help but lean back and sigh with satisfaction when a piece just works." –from the Introduction by Janna Silverstein
