    The protagonists of Suzana Tratnik's short stories all share a sense of isolation on society's margins. Whether non-participants in the mainstream, rebels against it, or its occasional victims, they're well practiced at recognizing the herd instinct in action. From the six-year-old girl who discovers transgressive new games to play with her glamorous cousin from England, to a decidedly unusual schoolchild inventing a novel way of getting back at playground bullies; to young women who find ther love interests drifting away, seduced by conventional notions of popularity and success, to a narrator who suddenly finds herself on no ordinary train trip through the heart of Slovenia - these are characters and stories that deftly and sardonically underscore the phantom nature of "normalcy" itself and the risks of its tyranny for dissenters and conformists alike.
