Belize's tropics, Ohio's lazy 50's suburbs, Florida's down-and-out Ybor City, Madrid's narrow streets and late tapa bar nights -- what Tom Abrams does with all these locales is almost as luxurious as what he does with the characters inhabiting them. Readers familiar with A Bad Piece of Luck will once more appreciate the down-and-dirty realism Abrams employs, but will find an added element ... kismet? Well, that implies love, and while dimestore romance is as absent as the Dow Jones Index, there is love in these stories, a love of life and a love of humanity -- no matter how mired it may at times become. So yes, kismet.
