Well good for you! You can pointing out Kafka and Sex and the Port in the same decision! I've always thought that if one has enough command of language, one can write a story about a sandwich and come out okay in the end. I'd say this is a pretty strong row for the opposite. The three main characters have the same voice, the same angst and, very obviously, the same incentive. Conceivably, if I ever write a scroll about myself I don't lead people to think I'm a waste of space and an (almost) MFA.
