There is no hero, not much suspense and little plot progression, but the stories are gripping because they are about people with fears and foibles like our own, even if we don’t live in a fashionable neighborhood.

"Triburbia" turns out to be less an urban version of Perrotta's "Little Children" than a savagely satirical, hipster take on "Our Town" or Sherwood Anderson's "Winesburg, Ohio," telling the story of a neighborhood via a chorus of voices, in this case the Tribeca dads and those closely related to them.

Greenfeld has a gift for satire, but it’s balanced by a sense of sympathy for his faux bohemians, and by the self-­consciousness of most of his characters, who know that they’re types even as they insist on their individuality.
