Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Stranger In This World Kevin Canty's writing reminds me of a car accident you can't turn away from. His short stories give you an frank jab of reality. They linger in your mind for days and weeks. It's a haunting feeling, one that won't leave you for some time. You'll cringe at some of the characters but garanteed, you'll be drawn back for more.
