There was a period of my life when I didn’t read short stories. That time is over. Thirteen wacky and offbalance stories grip you and shake you and then leave you smiling. These characters are misfit, edgy, shadow figures; Betty the advice columnist, the woman who begins to see ghosts which breaks up her marriage, a sister whose kids murder her accidentally, Jenny (beautiful Jenny who falls and teeters and gets better with age), Mr. Lazenbee and Marsha who drives her psychologist parents betty with lack of empathy and laughing at inappropriate things… it goes on.
Yes, read it.
