I enjoyed Kozma’s collection. My favorite story was “Mile High Bridge.” There was something about the dynamic between the couple that sustained a perfect short story tension. He wanted to impress her, without thinking about his physical safety. He thought it an odd excursion, but went along with it to be chivalrous. They don’t know each other terribly well, but you can feel the tug of romance beneath the surface. The story is darkly funny, but told realistically, one of those terrible situations we all sometimes find ourselves in, when we think, “one day we’re going to laugh at this.” And of course, the ending was perfect, with as good a last line to a short story as one can ask for.
Although I felt the title story wasn’t the strongest of the bunch, they all present a cohesive new voice to short fiction literature.
