    Perfect

    It is as though Strout has written these characters from their wounds outwards. Their vulnerability and anguish might be too painful to read if the stories weren’t also quite funny and the situations fascinating. At times the stories are so real they are surreal and so powerful they cause a shudder.

    Beautifully crafted stories of real people

    An amazing array of interconnected stories about a community and the people who live in a fictitious town in rural Illinois. Characters can have a fleeting role in one short story and be the feature of another with each being narrated from a new perspective. The writing is a rich observation of human behaviour.

    Good start

    I was quite excited when I started this book and liked the idea of the characters having links of some kind with each other, but the book seemed to end so abruptly. I was disappointed that the supposed climax didn't tie it all together in some way, shape, or form. Hence, the lower rating.
