I'm currently a student in an MFA in Creative Writing program, with a focus on short story.
I am therefore trying to read a wide range of short stories, and bought this and 2 other collections from Audible.com
I was sorry that so many of these stories were in the "horror" genre.
I was appalled and repelled by this book! Everything about it is stereotypical, and dubious. The female lead is a Sainted Sister, rearing her (yes, believe it) doomed Downs Syndrome brother in a shack full of drunks and idiots (her "dysfunctional" family.) Really. Can anyone actually relate to the male character's "throbbing member" when he sees this girl in her slip -- as he is evicting the family from the shack which on his property. OY, PULEEZE. I was truly astonished that hundreds of people rated this book 4+ stars. I've gotta get into the romance writing genre if the writing in this book "enchanted" and was "so sexy!"...GAGGING SOUNDS.
