"Mel Bosworth possesses a genuine and gentle humor. In Grease Stains, Kismet, and Maternal Wisdom, he introduces us to David and Samantha who exist in a world which allows them to be innocent and absurd and doesn’t punish them for it, a world in which the future is fixed and known yet completely invented as it’s approached. This paradox tugs at our perception of narrative, the future already past. During the short time they have together, they're not ashamed to have fun, or to embrace their fear of what’s already happened. David and Samantha shape the world around them, a world many of us would rather live in, 'just like real people.'"
