Three short stories written by John von Dorf. The first story goes over the calloused life of an elite finance student who summarizes three places by shallow interactions. The second story is a story about the good-ol'-boy's life of a rugby team, narrated by a strong cockney accent with excellent prose. The third story is about a fast-food worker growing comfortable in an uncomfortable world.
