English Language and Literature | Fiction
These are stunning stories, unsettling stories, terribly funny and at times terrible stories. They give a sense of what it is to be alive today, entering the last decade of the century, encumbered with the baggage of the past, confronting our new, nameless malaises and our depleted planet. They could not have been written by a younger writer, concerned as they (mostly) are with characters trapped in their middle years, confronting the meaning of their pasts: "'Richard,' she whispered. 'What happened to us? Where did everyone go?'... 'We just changed...' he said gently. 'We got older."'
