Short stories about what we can and can't do for each other.

What Kane does with this collection contradicts so many expectations of the short genre. It's pretty genius. Likely specialists and critics will spend countless hours debating over the work's shortcomings and merits. I hope to be a spectator. Kane's characters occupy the tension-laden middle ground of characters just about to face their antagonists. But they never proceed deeper. Additionally, several of the of the stories only masquerade as short stories when, in fact, they're really interrupted stories that interrupt and resume at different stages of the characters' lives. This particular reader found the selection nothing less than brilliant.

I find these stories depressing, sad; the characters pathetic even. The writing is fine.
