"The protagonist of Fourteen Stories, None of Them Are Yours doesnâ€™t make it easy for us, channeling as he does Barry Hannah and Denis Johnson by way of Rick Bass and Dennis Hopper, and self-presenting as yet another damaged romantic who thinks itâ€™s always time to play the cowboy, skating in and out of sense. He canâ€™t see right, and heâ€™s haunted by nearly everything. Heâ€™s trying to open up or shut himself down or at least get a hold of himself. Heâ€™s trying to make do with what heâ€™s done, while he reminds us that weâ€™re all, one way or another, in that position."
