The stories in this collection depicts the lives of young men coming of their age as they struggle to find contentment within themselves. They are unlikely journeys of self discovery that help them find this contentment. The central figures in these pieces find themselves weighing their lives against the vast array of eccentric characters that they encounter. Satisfaction and happiness with their place in life is what the people yearn for, but ultimately what I think these men discover is that sometimes no matter how far you travel you often simply find yourself only in a different place.
