Who I Was Supposed to Be by Susan Perabo

Who I Was Supposed to BeThis is a collection of well-written short stories that, in the words of the book jacket, “celebrate the absence of normalcy.” I would say that they are based on what happens when the boundary against casual violence and willfulness dissolves. They have surprising circumstances and occasional shocking moments, all introduced in a very calm, ordinary voice. They are a good read and not far from reality, but enough to be unsettling.
