    The book does what it says on the cover It delivers macabre and gross tales that are also very ordinary in some manner It’s a very interesting way to tell stories to permit the narrative to fall flat in some manner or to tell a story most people know and do it in such a creepy way you make it your own or to tell a very simple story that seems like it is telling you everything but is really telling you just enough to ask uestions At times Mikul denies the reader the catharsis often expected at the end of a tense story because he doesn’t spell things out and in other instances the narrative ends in a manner that is blunt and horrible Sometimes the simplest subversions of the traditional story telling method are the most effective and each of these stories in some manner are indeed macabre and indeed very ordinaryThe collection has nine stories and I want briefly to discuss each one I’ll do my best not to spoil the endings but in a collection like this one avoiding spoiling endings may well be impossible Metaphorically how do you spoil a door slamming in the middle of a sentence? Still I’ll be carefulFirst story “Dead Spit” is Patricia Highsmith’s Tom Ripley dropped into the Outback I don’t think I have spoiled it by describing it this way because again the ending will deprive you of the momentum you think the story is gathering The best part of this story for me at least was when I realized that I had created a big mystery cluered herring due to my own ignorance I don’t use canola oil because the word canola disgusts me so I was not aware it comes from plants that collectively are known as canola I guess I thought canola oil was a mixture of crappier oils and that the trade name for such oil was “canola” Who knew? Well evidently everyone else on the planet knew but that is a detail in this story – working in a canola field and it distracted me from what was really happeningYou can read the rest of the discussion here
