Lorrie Moore's razor-sharp collection of nine introspective, bitingly ironic short stories is complemented by Jane Oppenheimer's contemplative, wryly humorous narration. Delivering stories focusing on such themes as the challenges of new and long-term relationships, personal and professional growth, and children's relationships with their parents, Oppenheimer deftly endows the protagonists' voices with more than a touch of dry humor. Her insightful narration is emotional at times as she astutely captures the characters' internal monologues, a key element of this inward-looking work. In the dialogue, Oppenheimer employs varied tones to differentiate multiple characters, adding nuance and making the interactions sound realistic. S.E.G.
