This excellent collection of 10 short stories is insightful, smart, and funny, laying bare the petty concerns, inner thoughts, and vulnerabilities of their high-achieving protagonists. The two narrators, Emily Rankin and Mark Deakins, are a credit to the audiobook as they incorporate humorous touches where appropriate, even amid some of the more negative emotions on display. Rankin's youthful delivery is straightforward and no-nonsense, striking a tone that emphasizes the intelligence of the protagonists. Mark Deakins, for his part, also captures the sardonic intelligence and introspective nature of the stories in his well-paced delivery. Both narrators capture the timely, relevant, and humorous nature of these darkly observant stories. S.E.G.
