Book Review

Paul La Farge--"The History of The History of Death" (Harper's, March 2010)

SOUNDTRACK: KHRUANGBIN-Tiny Desk Concert #743 (May 16, 2018).

The sound of the guitar that Khruangbin create is so dead on for an old sixties band that as they started this set I thought perhaps it was a sample they were opening up with. 716 more words

Short Story

Ice: A flash fiction homage to pneumonia and the unreliable narrator

I’m not really sure if I’m here.

Every so often, someone comes into the room.  The person always says, “how are you doing, Mr. ______.”  I usually say, “I’m not really sure if I’m here.” Not once have I gotten a reasonable response to this.  601 more words

Method 15/33, by Shannon Kirk / ** ½

You can’t deny that Shannon Kirk’s Method 15/33 has a great hook, no matter what else you think about the book. It’s the story of a pregnant teenager who’s been kidnapped for reasons she’s only beginning to understand, but is assuming will end with her death – and the theft of her unborn child. 482 more words

Book Review:: Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, Gail Honeyman

Eleanor is an office professional nearing her thirtieth birthday. She doesn’t get along well with her coworkers, and she doesn’t really have any friends. She lives her life on a very strict schedule, including eating and drinking the very same thing every week (a menu that is nutritionally ideal, so why on earth would she change it?), and gets irritated when things in her life are thrown off course. 326 more words
