Review: Under the 82nd Airborne

User Review  - Floyd - Goodreads

Extremely fine and sifted short fiction from a writer of extraordinary sensibility. All the stories in this collection are well worth reading. A few of them ("The Custodian," "Under the 82nd Airborne") are small masterpieces. Read full review

User Review  - Emily - Goodreads

Complacent, occasionally felicitous writing about the banality of bourgeois urbanity, in a low state of emergency. Wish the stakes had been higher. Read full review
