Richard Ford's collection of short stories offer brief but substantial insight into the author's poetic take on modern realism, with a subject matter shamelessly indicative of his brood. Ford avoids affecting a heavy handed moral approach concerning any of his characters and shuns any attempt to deconstruct or excuse their behaviors. His prose is one of a distant conscience, perhaps an inherited voice from the very characters he has given birth to. The characters of Alan Ball's 'Six Feet Under' and 'American Beauty' would be well advised to intimate themselves with Ford's body of work.

I'm not a huge fan of short stories, because I like greater character development. Some of the stories in this collection were somewhat hard to follow, and left you wondering what really happened. Perhaps that's indicative of great writing! I did appreciate the subtle points that the author was trying to get across.
