The prose is stripped--minimalist, direct, urgent, unflinching. The stories revolve around ordinary characters and problems--people stuck in bad relationships or jobs. Some yearn for something just beyond their grasp, something authentic to knock them out of their malaise. Their frailties and obsessions are front and centre. They are garbage men, bus drivers, waitresses, soup kitchen clients, and neighbourhood perverts--tired and busy, too weary to contemplate--from social conditions that sanction only mere existence in redemptions agony and fleeting glory.
