A fine collection of short stories from the author of "The Leftovers," "Little Children," and "Election."

Tom Perrotta's short stories cover the every day problems people face in contemporary life. This is a good one to pick up if you like stories about relationships between neighbors and families. Also Perrotta's writing style is so smooth, you barely notice you're at the end before you've finished a story. A joy to read.

Wow! WOW! Tom Perrota is a genius who's ear and pen captures the hearts and minds of real people. I constantly had to remind myself that this was a fiction book. One of my favorite books ever!

Perrotta's gift comes from his ability to look into the everyday lives of people and find the one thing that sets a person apart, following that thread to conclusions at turns darkly comic, staggeringly clear, deeply ironic, and heartbreaking. This is on display in NINE INCHES, but the short form seems to take from this ability to spin a story; some stories -- like KIDDIE POOL and THE CHOSEN GIRL hit the reader like a punch; others, like THE TEST TAKER, feel like immature exercises in frustration and revenge. Perrotta fans will not want to miss; simply be prepared for the unevenness.
