Great, contempory short sories. Haven't read all of them but here's the first line from my favorite so far: "Your father picks you up from prison in a stolen Dodge Neon, with an 8-ball of coke in the glove compartment and a hooker named Mandy in the back seat." - Until Gwen by Dennis Lehane

Not necessarily indicative of the rest of the stories....but how can you not want to read more of that?

I read some of the stories - pretty sad lives, I haven't read enough short fiction to know if that is a prerequisite (maybe it is for Michael Chabon).
