Speed-walk and Other Stories

University of Pittsburgh Press, 2003

Many authors seek the extraordinary in the ordinary, but Suzanne Greenberg's talent lies in illuminating the ordinary in the midst of the extraordinary. She takes us on a moment-to-moment journey through the human psyche, where life's looming issues( an incurable cancer diagnosis, an abusive relationship, an accidental kidnapping(form the backdrop for all of the minor observations, urges, decisions, and reflections that accumulate to make up the true majority of our lives.
