BOYS

IR VERDICT:

Sweet, funny, sometimes a bit cynical, the short stories (and one longer story) in BOYS are a wry salute to juvenile masculinity, from the boy eager to come to terms with a bully to the young men navigating life as waiters in an Italian restaurant. Semegran captures a nice mix of swaggering adolescent self-assurance and private vulnerability, making each of his BOYS a thoroughly likeable individual with a full, three-dimensional personality.
