Astute concerning the nuances of sliding social type, the tales are tricky, direct, grimly humorous .... The writing is grownup: it recognizes how a lot has been misplaced already. however the tone continues to be clean with candy (or bruising) sensation. each personality comes rigged with a crazed belief-as the name suggests-that good fortune remains to be someway sure this way-after an unforeseen hold up in one other time-zone .... The stories are set in trailer suburbia. yet their activities look performed out around the Wal-Mart parking lot's purely clover-covered median. Sexual reduction are available, yet out close to the dumpsters of a closed strip-mall steak condo .... The writer's steadying empathy and ability for doom, force the characters towards reckless chance-takings. This creates a young suspense as challenging to shake because the tales' betraying religion in good fortune itself." Allan Gurganus, quotation for Runner Up within the Grace Paley Prize Competition.
