This collection of short stories draws on the lives of a diverse lot, and Robert Kee slips easily into the narrative voice of each story, telling each tale as if he were describing a typical day in the life of the family next door. But each of these families brings to everyday experiences a twist and a slightly eccentric and quirky view of the world. In a steady, sometimes staid, at times indignant, voice Kee speaks well for this rather motley group. As a collection, the stories lend themselves well to audio format as each brings out some aspect of its characters' common passions and fears in circumstances not so different from ours but, nonetheless, all their own.
