The Lovers Set Down Their Spoons (Iowa Short Fiction Award) - Heather A. Slomski

The shorter tales are not so much stories as little glimpses into larger stories- vignettes at best. But the longer ones have some really intense tension going on. So much that I'm not really into them right now; some people may find intense situations cathartic, but I don't think I'm in the mood for tightly-wound upper-middle class relationship drama.
