I am not a great lover of short stories to be honest excepting early Ray Bradbury in my formative years but it's been a while since I read a book which is so discomfitting and accurate in its portrayal of characters and their nuances. Because, the stories are very short, it's not a book that you can read in a oner but one to be savoured for each novella and all it encompasses. All but one of the stories are superb in their execution (I just couldn't see the point of 'The Bullet Stopper') and while some of the events played out make for strange fodder, the book as a whole is easily digestible. Excellent.
