Short stories that drew me in and kept me engaged. Everyday life both strange and familiar observed through a range of diverse characters.

Intrigued by the cover and title, I downloaded this new release.
Outstanding. I loved this collection of stories. Some are pretty dark, some sad and funny, though all have a strong vein of humour that brings the characters and stories to life.
The dialogue and narration running through each story are a joy.
There are twelve stories and it's hard to choose a favourite.
Greasy Joe's is sad, and Henry The Eighth is dark and also funny. I loved Jimmy and the Ferret and Ouagadougou was laugh-out-loud brilliant. Oh, and I have to add the final one, Strangers on a Train.
Each story left me wanting more and the book left me wanting a second collection from this author.
Different and original.

This is a great collection of short stories.
The first story, Greasy Joe's, is the darkest.
What I enjoyed most of all was the humour, observation, and characters.
It's original.
A couple of stories didn't quite work for me, but out of twelve, overall, this is a book of stories well worth reading.
