|About the Book|
It took me a while to decide, but I decided I like him. I like the element of magical realism, the strange stories mixed in with the believable ones, although he insists there is only My One True Story in here. Favorites include Midnight, Door, A Small Boat, Colorado, and I Remember When, and especially Mercy, Mercy.Favorite brilliant line: ...she rears and begs mercy. And I sell it to her cheap. One bite. Then were a family.Also:The fruit could never growif the blossoms never fell,she thought. And for the momentthat was reassurance,enough.
