Take the Denver stories which form a narrative of a Gothic city populated by people who feel they don't quite belong. In one story creative writing students are all secretly in love with their professor but does he register them at all?Figures from the 'old world' haunt the children and adults in the Jewish community of New York City. A troubled granny with a head that is bothering her, and the 'witch' in the basement flat, who has dark marks on her arm.In the Boston tales characters piece together dreams from the fragments of their lives.
