One of the few books I've read that requires a dictionary (not a bad thing!). Gave up about a third through. Just not my thing.

D'Ambrosio's colection of essays, [Loitering], is wonderful. So, I wanted to try his fiction. The writing is workmanlike but doesn't have the same flashes of greatness as the essays. The most memorable story features a boy who frequently is left to escort drunk men and women home from his mother's parties. The boy ends up a collector of all the rumors and gossip of these people's lives. Another stand out was the tale of a young couple's grief after the loss of their child. But, on balance, the stories didn't resonate near as well as D'Ambrosio's more personal non-fiction.

3 bones!!!
