I enjoyed this book immensely. Moore writes stories on a small scale, everyday occurances that seem simple but can break your heart at the same time. Her prose is plain, straightforward, yet beautiful.
My writing professor says that Moore is one of today's best short story writers, but I don't see it. Nearly all of her characters are interchangeable between stories, nothing ever happens, and the characters are unlikable. I admit, of course, to occasional brilliant descriptive writing and the intrigue of reading about characters you desperately hope you don't end up like, but overall it's a very frustrating and uninspiring read.
