These stories by Louis Phillips reinforce his reputation throughout his dozens of books of being imaginative, incisive, and entertaining. The voice here is that of a young man, sometimes a teenager and sometimes a college student, who is learning about life and about work. Phillips captures these formative years brilliantly, creating a coming-of-age collection of stories that will take you back to your own youth. The characters change from story to story, but they consistently look at the world with a naïveté and an innocence which exude great humor, great pathos, and great curiosity. These stories are not to be missed.
