Sherril Jaffe's concise, often witty language captures the myriad and mundane experiences of a life with extraordinary depth of emotion. Her stories range from short, to very short; her writing possesses the evocative brevity of poetry, yet it remains unequivocally prose. Here is "The Mime" in its entirety:

Nothing she had was her own but her white face.

Together, the stories collected in Scars Make Your Body More Interesting offer a portrait of the domestic, the unusual and the romantic that is recognizable to any reader.
