Kneel, short-story-writers, at the impeccably groomed, British feet of Matthew Kneale. His new book, Small Crimes In An Age of Abundance, not only has the best title of any short-story collection this year, but this best material between its covers. (It also has the best cover, an etching of a fat pig's behind.) These satiric, chilling, hilarious stories will shake you up like the salt at the table.
