bookshelves: oh-loyd-i-wanna-be-hearkbroken, short-stories
Read in February, 2012

Very nice and accomplished short stories around work (based from a bruce springsteen lyric? Well, maybe) so professionally edited and “finished” (is this a sign that triquarterly books knows what the hell they are doing and say like caketrain doesn’t?) , very assured, lots of plot, lots of character, lots of real life descriptions of real things like landscapes, tools, feelings. “muscle memory” set in new Orleans evokes both the gritty world or welding and dying world of new Orleans music. And “severac sound” too has the world of musicians mixed with wonderful evocations of place, both old nyc and new east coast florida. I like how all her woman characters are the exact opposite of stereotype. Great job Katherine karlin!
