Listen is a book where characters ask readers to do just that: listen to their stories, especially because many aren't the type of people who often get listened to--even though they should. These characters' trials, missed connections, and sundry challenges are full of surprises--some good, some bad, some funny, some wise, and some all this at once. Perhaps most surprising of all, there's tenderness here and a lot of heart--which often gets the collection's characters into a lot of trouble.
