This compilation of short stories is sure to affect you. Basically, the author works to leave a mark on your psyche...as in his other works. Somewhat depressing, some stories thought provoking, all about the struggles the characters have with life. None are happy nor at all optimistic. I was happy to be finished with this book - I never leave a book unread so I had to force myself to finish the last story as painful as it was. This author is very, very talented but I do NOT recommend any of his writings to anyone who is at all depressed, saddened, or lacking hope!

I bought this book because I was attracted to the book cover and title, not knowing that the content of this book offers so much more. The author's prose are genius. It got straight to the mark - the human heart! Never judge a book only by its cover.
