bookshelves: short-stories, finally-gonna-read-it-2013, minnesota

This collection contains early stories from one of my favorite Minnesota authors. There’s not much to these stories, and there are only seven of them. Two stories really stood out for me:

Good News in Culver Bend, in which two journalists, one young and one old, search for a Christmas story in a small town, and

Yesterday’s Garbage, in which a garbologist becomes a little too involved with a neighbor (and her garbage).

As for the other stories, they are pretty short and not very memorable. I prefer Hassler’s other collection of short stories, Rufus at the Door & Other Stories.
