    Collections of short stories are often such a mixed bag They can be funny sad confusing boring and who knows what else These stories fit several of those criteriaAt the end of this short story I wonder Is the grandmother dead? You see all that food is apparently standing around she doesn't move and there are tons of flies apparently The girl talks as if she is alive but I am not sure In another tale of puppets abortions and daughters kicked out to make room for daughter in laws I was wondering whether the protagonist was male or female At about one third of the book the short story was just plain weird I still don't know whether the mother is going from one guy to the next or whether she is a prostitute Heck I don't even know what these three women at the end were supposed to be there forAnd a while later after all these stories with female protagonists it was surprising to see the second story right after the first one that has a male protagonist in the first I wondered whether it is a lesbian story Also the next one had a young woman named Vi also and I wondered whether it's the same person However at about half of the book and with the story about the kid I guess and the singer before the problem started to appear that the stories start blurring together because they feel so much the same Sure kind of gritty stories are fine but this was one gritty short story after another and it started getting tiring

    Vision Impaired is one of the best short stories I have ever read Is it a critic of pseudo intellectualism dogmatic tradition gender exploitation or a tale of jealousy?
