Read from August 19 to 24, 2011

I think the mark of a good short story writer is that they manage to make you feel like you're reading a novel and like you'd want to read a full-length work by them. This is how Ford made me feel with this three story collection. I especially enjoyed how even though each story was set differently they were still connected and really quite similar. Anyone who's familiar with Richard Yate's work will definitely see his influence in these pages. I think Ford did a marvelous tribute to Yate's quiet despair and how it's really the commonness of everyday life that can break a person. This was the perfect introduction to Ford's work and I'm looking forward to trying out his novels soon.
