All Aunt Hagar's Children: Stories by Edward P Jones
All Aunt Hagar's Children: Stories

Abby, July 2, 2008

I absolutely adored Edward P Jones' novel 'the known world' and I can not help but compare this collection to my awe of that book, therefore I found it lacking. If you read this you must read 'the known world'.

I really like Alice Munro but found this collection lacking and shoved together, nothing flowed like I expected it to.

Like You'd Understand, Anyway: Stories by Jim Shepard
Like You'd Understand, Anyway: Stories

Abby, July 2, 2008

I have read many short story collections and this is definitely in my top five. The stories contain a fantastic array of characters and situations. I thought it was a collection of Jim Shepard's best but it isn't, it is his latest. Very entertaining reading.

Shakespeare's Kitchen by Lore Segal
Shakespeare's Kitchen

Abby, March 10, 2008

This collection of interrelated stories reads more like a novel than some novels do. The characters are flawlessly built, the setting is perfect and the conversation wonderful. I immediately researched every other Lore Segal book out there, a pure delight to read!
