Quite a disappointment; the stories are mostly quite plain and often refer to male homosexuality and even AIDS (Findley was homosexual and these stories were published in the late 1980s); it seems that he was just capitalizing on the fad. The only story that I quite liked was the one entitled "Foxes", which is quite different from the others (although, it could be argued that it makes oblique reference to "Confessions Of A Mask", a novel by Mishima).
