The two previous commentators are right on. The only thing to add is, if you like laugh-out-loud; snorting through your nose stories, this man is for you.

Set in rural Louisiana and spiked with humor reminiscent of Flannery O’Connor and Mark Twain, many of these stories address moral questions, such as the title story, in which a grandfather increasingly finds himself parenting the children of his irresponsible daughters, whom he neglected as children. Gautreaux's stories have appeared in the Best American Short Stories anthology many times, and with good reason: this reader believes he is America's greatest living short story writer.

If you like an author that can paint pictures with words and can put you inside someones head all in the space of a short story then you will enjoy this book. I did.
