Shoultz’s first collection of short stories made me contemplate life in different ways. This collection was a joy to read, both as separate stories and as an anthology. This book will become well read & dog-eared in short order as it becomes my go-to read when I’m looking for something quick to read. I can’t wait for his second collection.
