Most of these stories are “close but no cigar.” Astoundingly realistic characters who remind me of Pirandello. Except in search of a play, they are in search of a plot. All, that is, except the title story. It is perfect and one of the best short stories I have ever read. It is well worth the price of the book alone and shows how the rest of the selections are working toward this. Wow! This is a life changer.
