it was amazing
bookshelves: read-it-dug-it
Read in September, 2007

As a writer, it seems that Shepard lets his curiosities lead the way. Luckily for us, his talents for creating characters and telling stories follow closely, making his personal interests of interest to his readers.

I still ache a little at the thought of the brothers in "Courtesy for Beginners."

The book's most economically illustrative line is in "Pleasure Boating in Lituya Bay:" The narrator--a married man--tells the reader, "We honeymooned in San Francisco. Here's what that was like for me: I still root for that city's teams."
