These stories aren't just written for and about the boxer-wearing wedge-pulling set. They are written for everyone that appreciates real language and at times tawdry events. I found that they are addictive and will evoke a full range of emotions. Be prepared to blush, cry, laugh and breakout in goose bumps.
There was a real `story-teller' tone to the writing. It was like having a friend tell you a tale over a glass of wine. A very enjoyable collection.
Sifre has a natural bent for black humor and a subtle approach to its depiction. His style is flowing and detailed with ordinary life while he uses details to heighten the psychology of his stories. They are quick in the telling but rich in idea - an automated street cleaner's attachment, avenging Christmas dwarves, couples that fatally part while fishing or in the midst of annoying flies, a murderer's tweets, scenes in Starbucks. This is a funny yet probing book.
My favorites keep changing, but currently, Top Ten List, I'll Be Home For Christmas, and House Calls, (OMG, its great!) are topping the list.
The stories are dark, funny, sometimes *very* disturbing, and for that five minutes or so it takes one to read, utterly compelling.
The book isn't perfect. There are a lot of inconsistencies in Softly She Sleeps. There are some formatting issues and a few typos, but they're not a big deal and they're not particularly distracting, and as good as this book is, worth noting only because I am a stickler about such things.
I'm glad I found this guy. I already have his second book loaded on my Kindle and am really hoping it's as good as this. Fingers crossed.

This is a fine collection of stories. The tales run the gamut from humor to horror, with an occasional story managing to comfortably mix the the two. Read morePublished on November 18, 2012 by Pope Mel
