A sassy collection of vivid and moving stores portraying edgy modern lives in highly-charged relationships. Not for the faint of heart, Crane's humour has a dark, almost sinister, edge. However, her tired pessimism is tempered with grace and frequent avenues of hope. A profusion of sex delivers surprises, not all of them pleasant. A new father, shopping for groceries with his baby and a hangover, worries that the child may not actually be his. An ultrasound technician, envious of her co-worker's sex life, has an unexpected second encounter with a creepy male patient. The wife of a hockey player is faced with his ambiguous sexuality. A young woman waits her turn at an abortion clinic, harbouring the secret that the baby's father might not be the boyfriend sitting beside her. These wonderfully-drawn characters sweep the reader into their anxious and often funny lives. Sophisticated story-telling makes the most complicated situations crystal clear and a pleasure to read. Crane's male points of view are as effective as the female. Her endings are just right and satisfying. Joint the Cult of Quick Repair and prepare to see another side of all-too-familiar contemporary life, in all its fraught and aching glory.I retied the laces in double knots, then got my new pink and white Schwinn from the patio.
