She presents a wonderful array of vivid images in a day in the life of the protagonist, who hatches a scheme doomed to certain failure and clings way past prudence to his impossible hopes and dreams. His go-along partner is a perfect example of how unexpected opportunity turns the sheep into wolf.
One really can't get enough of these stories of Calin's, nor of her steamy, romantic novel, "Knockout". She has the strivings and foibles of humanity literally in the palm of her hand, and a profoundly intuitive finger on the pulse.
