A short story collection that I enjoyed while I was reading it, but I did not especially love any one particular story.
I feel as though a great joke has been played on the reading public by the book critics of National Public Radio, the New York Times, and the Washington Post. A cruel hoax. ‘Just words — crack them open and they were empty.‘ And, on the audio, ‘stacking the sounds up like wooden blocks.‘ It was like Lauren Groff‘s Florida all over again. I really don‘t care how beautiful the writing is, none of these stories made any sense. HARD PASS. ⭐️⭐️
