really liked it
bookshelves: fiction
Read from August 16 to 17, 2010 — I own a copy

The subjects and characters of the stories are wide and varied, and there's a fine balance between what drives the stories- plot and character. Atypical? Yes. Imaginative? Yes. Interesting? Yes. Yet as much as the stories vary, they all have that integral, unified voice and a refined writing style. As much as I would be into one story, and it ended, I couldn't wait to start the next. Which is to say, the writing was so good and the stories so intriguing, that I kept on reading "just one more story" instead of doing other things I should have.

Jim Thanks, Katey! Very fine praise.
