    Turchi has the extraordinary ability to lead the reader in one direction only hinting at the true significance until the end where you just have to sit back drink a cup of coffee and reflect on the flow pacing and characterization that foreshadowed the conclusion of each fantastic tale Each story is about people we relate to about situations we understand and yet they are filled with illusions and trickery aptly enhancing the collection's title and the uniueness Turchi offers to the short story genreThe writing itself is well thought out and satisfying but hard to place It's intelligent and timeless like Hemingway but even crisp like Capote and yet much modern like a Koontz or similar pop writerDespite its age I was surprised by how relevant this collection felt The characters aren't running around with cell phones but other than that they are the same people I know today they share similar feelings and emotions as myself and people I know They even seem trendy at times You understand them or think you do and for this collection that’s importantOverall I can't go on enough how much I enjoyed reading these short stories Alligator was my personal favorite of the bunch but Everything I Need False Spring and Restless Sleep were close follow ups and all were enjoyable in some way Short sweet and artistic reading these stories remind us why not so long ago it was books that inspired us and were the topic of discussion as opposed to internet and the movies Much to the dismay of my friends I found myself spouting on and on about Alligator and how shocked I was at the end However I think even they would understand my obsession if they had read it themselves
