it was amazing
Read in February, 2010

I have read some stunningly good short story collections in the past year (Lydia Davis's "Varieties of Disturbance," Maile Meloy's "Both Ways is the Only Way I want It," Nam Le's "The Boat"), and now I'm adding Andrew Porter's "The Theory of Light and Matter" to that list of books I just couldn't put down. If you appreciate beautiful honest writing without all the flash, you will love these stories. My personal favorites were "Connecticut," "River Dog" and "Departure," but they were all so good.
