This is and is not the same Mark Haddon who may have charmed you with "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time." You will recognize the flawless skill of Haddon's tight prose style, but in this collection of short stories his words prove far sharper, blades that will cut you in ways you do not expect. The stories shine with humanity, but often glare with a relentless sense of isolation.
