bookshelves: shortstory-collections, nonfiction
Read in May, 2009

This collection contains some of Lopez's nonfiction essays as well as a few fictional short stories. However, his style and themes remain somewhat similar throughout, blurring what is fiction and what is not. I think his most stylistically poetic piece - on that stands out as fiction - is "The Woman Who Had Shells". The whole collection is a spectacular and engaging consideration of the relationship between humanity and nature, without preaching but offering up the many sides of the interrelation for us to create our own answers. I'll definitely be reading more of 'ol Barry.
