I suggest everyone avoid this book. I have read many excellent short story collections, this is NOT one. The most horrifying thing about this book is the disjointed, rambling nature of the stories themselves. This was probably some of the most pretentious drivel I have ever read since reading "DJSturbia" by David Schow. I get the feeling that Mr. Ballingrud is one of those annoying people who likes to talk simply to hear themselves speak. Incomprehensible.

A great read! Although maybe not right before bed...
