The storylines were interesting and well crafted, but just too depressing. A happy ending is not always required but some hope would be nice.

I recently read erstwhile Northwesterner Charles D'Ambrosio's excellent collection of essays, "Loitering," and was quick to search out more of his writing. Published in 2006, his book of short stories, "The Dead Fish Museum," highlights the same tenderness, subtle wit, and insight of his essays. Sort of in the so-called "dirty realism" vein, there are echoes of Carver's tough minimalism, Hemingway's Nick Adams's stories of hunting and fishing, and the squalid grace of Johnson's "Jesus' Son." His characters, even if there are successful, like the protagonist of "Screenwriter," dwell on the margins, whether it be of society or their own grip on sanity. He deserves the attention that the vastly overrated George Saunders hogs.
