Walter's collection of stories brings the small-town Northwest region to life with an array of down on their luck characters (hobos, gamblers, thieves, etc.). The opening story, my favorite, "Anything Helps," is about a homeless panhandler who wants to buy the new Harry Potter book. Funny but sad yet frighteningly realistic.
