I think that short story collections are criminally ignored, and I'm glad that I decided to take on this collection after reading a small description in the Independent Booksellers' newsletter. All the stories are all linked back to the fictional town of Tenney's Landing, Pennsylvania, but only loosely linked to each other. (I have a penchant for stories about small towns.) Tudish deftly dodges the lamentable tendency of most authors to romanticize small towns. My favorite stories - though they [...]
I really like the characters in this book. She also begins the book with a prologue that describes the start of the town and then proceeds to tell the stories of people in that town. The stories can be really moving but none of the stories have an ending. The fact that I am uncomfortable with that may say more about me than the stories themselves, but I have to say I would like some resolution to the stories. Overall, well written.
As someone who not only enjoys short stories, but also those about small towns, this book did not let me down. It was a wonderful glimpse into the lives of these people, all of whom are tied together by their small town. It was almost as though you were a voyer into their homes and their histories. Wonderfully written, you feel as if you know these people through the short time you spend with them. A very quick read.
A book I picked up on clearance at Michigan Tech so I wasn't sure what to expect. A pleasant surprise because it was quite good - human/family/friend relationships in and around a small town in Pennsylvania. Gently told stories of life.
I enjoyed these stories, but I usually prefer long fiction. These stories revolved around women who lived in or near the western Pennsylvania town of Tenney's Landing over an extended period of time.
This is probably the least dark book I've read in a long time. I was reminded of how much I like short stories, and how much I like darkness. It's a gentle, well-written book.
Grounded storytelling, with a thread connecting rural Pennsylvania.
awesome.y this one
These stories provide real connection to the characters, often in difficult situations.
Beautifully written. While I do not usually enjoy a series of short stories, there is a thread. I truely enjoyed this wonderfully crafted book full of interesting, real people.
