Oh Lizzie. Who knew you did fiction so well? Ms. Gilbert's stories are pithy. That's the best word I can think of to describe them. They are quick, and to the point. No muss, no fuss. No endless exposition filled with her characters' internal she does with her own thoughts in Eat, Pray, Love. Not much "happens" in her stories. These stories seem to narrate the onslaught of emotions and how they rear their heads inside her characters. How and when does common experience manage to pull forth sensations of love, bitterness, longing or confusion? Read these stories to find out.
