I watched the news for fifteen minutes and saw the word “deadly” used in two separate headlines for two different events. Is it true that life-and-death scenarios are all that interest our culture nowadays? The recent stream of crime thrillers issuing from trade publishers would support that theory. But isn’t that setting the bar so low? Simply “getting out alive” has become the happy ending.

I suppose the question I’ve got is this: what happened to the small, intimate stories that enrich life instead of merely keep a hold on it?
