it was amazing

I don’t read short stories often enough. I wrote about this several years ago when I picked up a collection by Alice Munro. Thunderstruck and other Stories reminded me of this fact again.

I had not heard of Elizabeth McCracken until I read Ann Patchett’s collection of essays This is the Story of a Happy Marriage, and Patchett mentioned in one of them that she and McCracken are writing partners. I ordered this collection immediately.

Thunderstruck is a collection of nine stories about people who are missing – some runaway, some die, others just disappear. It is an interesting thread for what appears to otherwise be unconnected stories.
