David often examines the emotions of women of all ages - sometimes in a womans voice. He lampoons and surprises. He treats us to science fiction, perky teens, cunning old men, clumsy gods, touching romances and even some gratuitous whimsy -- often with a surprise ending twist.

David has a sly sense of humor that enjoys irony, bad puns, and tongue-in-cheek allusions. Look out for unexpected endings and the consequences of hubris - acting with excessive self-confidence. Some of this material touches on grown-up themes. [His writing is] humorous, bold, and adventurous all at once ... channeled through a facility for language and the music of words.

I recommend these short stories to smart people. David has indulged his subtle wit and rich vocabulary. He does not use word pretentiously, but with precision and beauty. He does not spoon-feed every detail but, like other good literature, leaves morsels on the table to be picked up, examined, chewed and savored.
