Who would have thought that Steve Martin could write a novella that takes you deep inside the mind and psyche of the characters.  Don't expect so much a plot as a sketch or character study in Shopgirl.  A really nice read so far.

If he thinks he would harm Mirabelle, he would
back away. But he does not yet understand when
and how people are hurt. He doesn’t understand
the subtleties of slights and pains, that it is not
the big events that hurt the most but rather the smallest
questionable shift in tone at the end of a spoken word
that can plow most deeply into the heart.
