From the Paper:

"The short stories referenced in this paper bring universal truths to light in numerous ways, including through the use of dialogue, irony, foreshadowing, conflict, imagery, and more. Interestingly, these stories are both told by narrators whose interests in life aren't nearly as compelling to the reader as are the lives of the narrators' sisters whom they describe in great detail. Readers believe the narrators are telling the truth because brothers and sisters don't lie about their sisters."
