With a flawless comedic sensibility and unblinking intelligence, these stories range over the full complement of universal subjects: ageing, race, loss, faith, marriage, the real estate debacle - the tumult of the world we live in.Written in a fresh, graceful, accessible voice . In the supple, thickly detailed Bascombe prose, shifting effortlessly from lyrical to vulgar in a sentence . There are many small marvels
