So Much Time, So Little Change is a compilation of humorous essays written by Thomas M. Sullivan. This is Sullivan’s sophomore effort; his first published work, a memoir titled Life in the Slow Lane, was published in 2010. The topics of the essays here are broad in range, but they do have one thing in common: they are all quite entertaining. Sullivan is a perceptive people watcher and skilled storyteller. Sullivan transforms ordinary subjects like a trip to the DMV, fixing and selling a house and the relentless up-selling tactics of sales clerks into funny, memorable tales that will delight readers. The stories in So Much Time, So Little Change are as comical as the monkey gesturing obscenely on its cover.
