My favorite piece was Joseph Reed Hayes' gentle West Farms. Willy grew up poor and neglected, and transferred his affections to his older brother Danny. Danny aimed for fame in the ring, but wasn't good enough, and after a round of cheap booze ended up flying through the imaginary window of a strip club. The story is well wrought, and Kurizsky's presentation warms with support from the hard punching Danny and the creepy trainer Rickets. Dreams fade, but we all find a time and place to live, even if we change busses occasionally." - Ink19.com
