A collection of fifteen stories written with a pen like a surgeon’s scalpel: Tobias Wolff dissects reality, sometimes the very moment, and lets everything come out, looking, in a sense, for healing. It’s that kind of fiction that makes you feel inadequate. As if until now you have been blind. You come to realise that surgery has been used on you too, opening doors that you never knew you possessed, sharpening all your senses. A true sensory experience.
