Jess Walter's latest book, We Live in Water, is a slender, clean, and beautiful collection of stories linked by just enough tissue and membrane to make the book a satisfying whole -- more than the sum of its parts.

It is perhaps a grim and fatalistic vision that Jess Walter presents in "We Live in Water," yet one that in today's America seems all-too-recognizable; no, we may not all live in water, but at one time or another, we have all lived in Spokane.

Walter's got a great ear and a genius for sympathy with America's new dispossessed.
