In "Nickerson's Luck" the loss of a hubcap and its eventual reappearance shape a man's relationship to his almost ex-wife and the waitress he dates. In "Unified Field Theory", a warehouseman sees the world as a place where human relations overcome the theories of physics: planes stay airborne by an act of collective concentration, and the bonds of love are stronger than atomic bonds. All of Frank Soos's characters are deeply layered, engaged thoughtfully in complicated lives.
