This book is brilliant, not a single misstep in the entire anthology. There's generous dose of humor with a dash of spiritual enlightenment. Arvin again manages to blow me away with his mastery of language and the magnificent turns of phrase that make this book one of the best I've ever read. Arvin has a true talent for creating unique and wholly lovable characters. This is one collection that you don't want to miss. I gulped it down in one day and I know it's a book that I will reread many times.
