Astute in regards to the nuances of sliding social type, the tales are tricky, direct, grimly humorous ....

The stories are set in trailer suburbia. yet their activities look performed out around the Wal-Mart parking lot's purely clover-covered median. Sexual reduction are available, yet out close to the dumpsters of a closed strip-mall steak condominium .... The writer's steadying empathy and skill for doom, force the characters towards reckless chance-takings. This creates a young suspense as difficult to shake because the tales' betraying religion in good fortune itself." Allan Gurganus, quotation for Runner Up within the Grace Paley Prize Competition.
