Read in September, 2008

This was a really wonderful read. Nice to come home after long days and read one of the stories before bed. I've read several of them a couple times over now. Highly recommend.

This book was recommended to me last week by an MFA student sitting at the information desk of Prairie Lights. He told me they were the most romantic and least sappy stories he had ever read. I am about halfway through, but his description is a good one so far. There are also some great one line truisms that the author seamlessly drops into the story lines that I am loving, e.g., "Without memory, he thought, man would be invincible" and "Anniversaries are sad and beautiful. Snow momentarily turns to rain." I have a fondness for that technique - as well as prose that reads like poetry - so am really liking this one.
