OK, I've got to apologize to Stephanie Reents. I read her debut The Kissing List and told her to lighten up...and then I read this, which has horrible things happening in every single story. Is there some college that tells writers make their first book sad, depressing, hopeless short stories? First, I think Lee could have easily made some of these short stories into full length novels (with some lightness interludes) and explain at the same time Korean items (food especially) to those of us who don't have a clue about different rice cakes. Really, boiled silkworms? That can't be right. But if they are, crunchy? or soft? Good writing and characterizations, but I sure wouldn't read this in the cold depths of January.
