    As with all short story collections, I enjoyed some storiesthan others But what impressed me the most with Shoemaker s writing is that it dug in, hid under my skin, and keeps popping up throughout my days and nights And, ultimately, I think that s what any writer hopes for to haunt their readers.

    This collection has a wonderful way of demonstrating intensely emotional experiences for the characters in apparently ordinary happenings You know exactly the simple surface thing that has just occurred, but you have no question as to the significance of that surface event Marvelously understated, you feel what is happening rather than just comprehending The characters are reflective without stooping to nostalgia Very rich stories.
