"We've all read stories that feature besotted teenagers, grieving widows, playboy fathers, witch craft, drug addiction, girls mating with girls, singers making a comeback, etc. but never more brilliantly portrayed than in this little jewel collection of short stories, each succinct and perfect, so perfect they could convince you most other writers go on too long!"
