Top Customer Reviews

By A Customer on 21 Aug. 1997
Format: Hardcover
Amy Hempel is an anorexic writer. She is right down to the bones. It's impossible to find any excessive or fat words in her text. Although easily digested, her words remain so chocked full of minerals, vitamins, and vitality that you simply cannot find another contemporary writer that gives you more of a reading work-out in so little time.
The short stories in this compilation live up to this streamlined reputation; however, the novella, Tumble Home, left me tumbling back to Sylvia Plath's Bell Jar and Gillman's feminist classic, The Yellow Wallpaper. I was left thinking that I had read it somewhere before, perhaps on a plane, or before a nap. No new territory here, but the prelude to it, the skinny part, makes it worth the voyage.
