Sounds interesting. I'm going to add it to my short story shelf.

Do you think it's at all like The Intreperter of Maladies? It sounds like it has a similar sensibility/humor.

Sorry, can't help on that one, as I haven't read The Intreperter of Maladies. I glided through this story on first read as the writing is very low key, but against expectations it has stayed with me, leaving me feeling it was worth more than I first thought, and I ot more out of it oon re-reads. I felt too that I needed to read the whole collection to get a proper grip on Nam Le's style, and as I say I read it in a magazine. One of his stories makes a good advert for the rest!
