Bring Your Legs with You
Part of the pleasure of reading this book is Spencer's ability to render character, to reveal the speakers' vulnerability behind their machismo and rough eduges. Readers are likely to be reduced by this book's language—dialogue so hard-hitting you feel as if you might have toughed up just by reading it. But the emotional weight of the characters' lives is what makes them so memorable. . . .The bewitchng language and poignancy of these characters remains long after the stories are over.
