In this collection of short stories by the razor-sharp Lorrie Moore, Natasha Soudek's narration often drips with the irony and wry wit for which Moore is known. The writing is artful, capturing complex characters with complex emotions, even within the constraints of the short story format. The 12 stories are varied, ranging from a couple's attendance of an academic retreat in Italy to the tribulations of a family undergoing their baby son's treatment for cancer and the experiences of a gay couple taking a road trip. Throughout the stories, Soudek does a better job voicing the female protagonists than the males. Overall, she captures Moore's droll, biting humor with her sardonic tone and unhurried pace.
