Jess Walter's latest book, We Live in Water, is a slender, clean, and beautiful collection of stories linked by just enough tissue and membrane to make the book a satisfying whole -- more than the sum of its parts.

Walter's got a great ear and a genius for sympathy with America's new dispossessed.
