When I finally got around to getting it I was surprised and delighted by the freshness of the author's point of view. The stories have the usual points of interest but are tinged a the unique taste of humor. Spicy but not too hot. Great!
there are characters here that are sharply drawn for short stories: cooper, xica, pinky, anexus corban and father simon. stand out stories for me are: "The Saving Work," "The International Shop of Coffins," and "Kill the Rabbits."
i am eager to read a novel by this eloquent writer.
