Good short stories, I find, are rare -- and addictive! I read one, savour it, plan to turn the light off and get to sleep, but think, oh it won't take long to read just one more, and have to stop myself reading all of them.
Janice McBride's well-observed characters, her clever plotting, her charming mix of life's serious realities with the funny things that happen; all these ingredients make for a very enjoyable portrayal of family life. Very much a collection that makes you want her to write more asap!
