    One thought on “The Rest of Your Life and Everything That Comes With It”

    1. A bit uneven, but the good stories ("Yellow Elephant," "The Other Woman," "The Cleaner's Daughter," "What Are You Hiding?" and "Sleeping") are REALLY good.

    2. Nice styleunpretentious.But, sadly, most stories are "unresolved". Leave you with a strange wondering about what happened to the characters.
