Though it's true of many books, Tom Perrotta's short story collection bears out H.D. Thoreau's words: "The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation." In these 10 stories, we see multiple characters of various ages yearning for things even they cannot identify. Though all are suburban types, some are middle-aged men, others middle-aged women, and a few teenagers. Perrotta has a sure hand with all of these ages, thanks to his established track record with novels.

P.S. Not a fan of the cover, which is a cheap joke on the story, "Nine Inches," which is actually about the distance teachers must keep dancers apart at a middle school dance.
