Mr. Tobias figured out early on in his writing career that the best way to engage or speak directly to a reader is to write his works on things he has experienced. In conjunction, in most of his stories, he develops characters that in some way emulate him as he tells the story. James C Dolan, a Best Sellers reviewer, advises readers to "relax and enter into the sometimes comic, always compassionate world of ordinary people who suffer twentieth-century martyrdoms of growing up, growing old, loving and lacking love, living with parents and lovers and wives and their own weaknesses" (Ansell2) in regards to some of Wolff’s works and characters.
