Summary
The stories in this collection focus on utilizing formal experimentation in order to illuminate the struggles of characters. For example, the title story focuses a couple that enters a photo booth and leaves with a doomed relationship; the entire story occurs in less than five minutes. Others illustrate characters that do not know how to deal with their interpersonal relationships: a son rants at a family get-together, a brother seeks help from his drunkard sibling, a man gets out his vehicle on a crowded highway, and a loner struggles to connect with his fellow humans. These conflicts are deepened and magnified through some formal excursions, but many of the stories adhere to conventional modes of storytelling, offering up a varied exploration of the human experience
