Sometimes, works are published posthumously because they are ahead of their time, and wouldn't be well-received by contemporary audiences. Other times, they are published after the author's death because they simply aren't as good as the rest of the author's work. Voices from the Street
falls into the latter category.
The supporting characters were very two-dimensional and stereotypes abound throughout the story...at times to the point of distraction. I also had a difficult time feeling any sort of sympathy for Stuart, who seemed more of an apathetic screw-up than someone who felt that he had missed an opportunity to create something better of his life, or someone who was frustrated by his retail job and pregnant wife.
