The writing itself is well thought out and satisfying, but hard to place. It's intelligent and timeless like Hemingway, but crisper, like Capote, and yet much more modern, like a Koontz or somebody. Additionally, at nearly 20 years old, I was surprised by how relevant this collection was. The characters aren't running around with cell phones, but other than that they are the same people I know today, they share similar feelings and emotions as myself and people I know. They even seem trendy at times! You understand them, and for this collection, it's important.
Overall, I can't go on enough how much I enjoyed reading these short stories. "Alligator" was my personal favorite of the bunch, but "Everything I Need" "False Spring" and "Restless Sleep" were close follow-ups and all were enjoyable in some way. Short, sweet, and artistic, reading these stories remind us why not so long ago it was books that inspired us and were the topic of discussion as opposed to internet and the movies. Much to the dismay of my friends, I found myself spouting on and on about "Alligator" and how shocked I was at the end. However, I think even they would understand my obsession if they had read it themselves.
