This wonderful collection of stories will appeal to readers who generally prefer longer fiction, as well as those who love short stories. The 12 stories are all told by people who are walking on the edge of love and disaster: a single mother just recovering from birth, a young woman watching her sister slip into madness, a boy who witnesses the accidental death of his cousin, a husband contemplating infidelity. Bloom fearlessly presents narrators of various ages and both sexes. She often retells the same story from the point of view of the various characters who appear in it. Tonya Jordan's reading is adequate, except for the occasional odd pronunciation. It is the stories themselves and the characters the reader meets in them that recommend this remarkable audiobook.
