5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime Writer, 15 Oct 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Birds of America (Paperback)
Lorrie Moore is a consummate writer. For anyone who has not yet discovered her, "Birds Of America" is the ideal place to start. These short stories reach the deepest levels of the heart and the mind, laying forth a series of scorching, miniature portraits of absolute individuals, not one stereotype, full of the unexpected, painted with the deftest of brush strokes like impressionist paintings. The heart of contemporary America is laid bare through these jewelled miniatures, and the sheer, joyful richness of her language.

5.0 out of 5 stars An astounding collection of bittersweet short stories., 18 Jun 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Birds of America (Paperback)
Birds of America is an amazing collection of short stories. Read them alone, in the sun. These bittersweet moments in Moore's characters' lives are by far the best thing I have read this year. I don't wish to sound cliched, but they will make you smile, laugh and cry. Totally astounding.

4.0 out of 5 stars A broad spectrum of american life, 14 April 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Birds of America (Paperback)
"Birds of America" contains a number of stories which seem to cover a broad spectrum of the american life. Each story is very different from the others, but still, they are all insightful in the emotions that come with many aspects of life. It makes me wonder where Moore gets her inspiration. It would be painful to undergo all these emotions in person.
