A group of narrators takes turns delivering Homes's story collection, offering a mixture of tones and textures that add weight and specificity to her characters and storylines. Melding the bizarre and the mundane, Homes depicts the odd rhythms and lingering emotions that are present in both daily life and outlandish situations, while the characterizations of the narrators allude to the dissatisfaction and restlessness that many of these characters are experiencing. The pacing is at times disjointed, but the emotions and dialogue are solid, illuminating the tension in many uncomfortable moments. Homes's characters are flawed, complex, and deeply introspective, and while there's little overlap between stories, each narrator works to create a cohesive listening experience, capturing the tones and style of Homes's atmospheric, melancholy pieces.
