Tunneling to the Center of the Earth by Kevin Wilson
If you look through the books I read, you won't find many story collections. I'm not really a fan, but Kevin Wilson may have changed my mind. If he keeps writing them, I'll keep reading them. He rocks! This adult collection of stories has eleven stories that aren't connected, other than the fact that they are all good. They are so *different* and almost unbelievable, but he makes everything work. There's a guy who sorts letters in a Scrabble factory. A cheerleader who has no pep. A woman who is paid to be a grandmother for other families. And all sorts of interesting people in interesting situations.
Chuck out your reader's digest and make this your short-term reading material.
