The power with these stories, whether they aim to discomfort, awe, or humor is with Bosworth's ability to distill an entire scene into a single, piercing line. In "Sometimes Conditional," a father watches his son board a school bus, and as he cries, he sees "his [son's] entire being bend through the water that filled my eyes" (pg. 3). In "The Stumbling Conquistador," a failed convenience store thief, after a conversation with the sympathetic store clerk, reflects, saying, "I pedaled up the street, shirt billowing in the breeze like sympathetic magic, inflating my self-worth. I pedaled up. I pedaled. Up" (pg. 18). These lines are perfect encapsulations of their respective stories, imbuing the entire collection with a sense of poignancy that may have remained untapped had these image "landmarks" not been peppered throughout.
When the Cats Razzed the Chickens & other stories is quite honestly a tease, a hint of greatness to come.
