Reviewed: World Takes, by Timmy Waldron
The thirteen stories in World Takes range in tone from humorous to wistful to apocalyptic. Yet what unites most of them is Waldron’s affection for his characters: whether an aging George Washington impersonator or a cocaine-fueled cubicle drone, Waldron’s treatment of his protagonists is respectful, understanding their flaws while still suggesting the prospect of redemption.
