I generally avoid short stories; however, if they are written by Jennifer Haigh, I will read them as soon as possible. These inter-related, yet stand-alone, stories provide a rich perspective of life in a small mining town in western Pennsylvania in the middle of the 20th century. They encompass hope, despair, courage, cowardice, generosity and all the other qualities that define the human condition.
