Read in December, 2010

I have to admit I have never been one for short stories. I never fully understood the potential of this genre until I picked up "This Cake is for the Party" because it was on the Giller list. I was blown away by the depth of characters and my visceral reaction to the situations that Selecky was able to squeeze into these short stories. I was amazed that fiction could be so short yet pack a huge wallop. This collection has inspired me to pursue other collections of short fiction.
