Top Customer Reviews
"What do we have here then? Nice. Kind. Loved her family. Did good works around town. Nothing."
The final story in the collection, which also provides its title, is a poignant examination of what happens when digital identity is stolen, a modern-day dilemma if there ever was one. The victim in the story feels helpless, which Horgan expresses in a very affecting way.
"It bored the system to imagine worrying about so small a thing, so impossibly bothersome to unravel, like trying to remove the cream from the coffee."
This collection, with its subtle and pointed observations, is not to be missed.
