Michael's Book Babble

I'm an indie author and a scribbler of inane babble. I talk about books I've read/liked. Or at least, that's the plan.

 

Most of the reviews will be considered "mini-reviews." Usually, it's mostly my reaction to what I've been reading. There are people who are far better at doing full and helpful reviews. But I still have fun doing them, and hope you enjoy them!

2 stories in so far...

Crow Fair: Stories - Thomas McGuane

...and I have to say I'm digging the hell out of it. Everybody feels real in these first two stories. No over-complicated plots. Just very slice-of-life, which is always my favorite kind of writing when it comes to short stories.

 

Not adding this to the shelf, because again I'm jumping around in all sorts of different short story collections at the moment. All I can say is this is off to a very promising start. I hope it continues that way.
