Reasons to Live: Stories by by Amy Hempel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Amy Hempel is a good writer. I am torn between wanting to be as good, and disdaining anything I write which at all resembles her work. I think this is because her stories force me to face things about myself and other humans, and it's not at all pretty.
Hmmm, sounds real, doesn't it? Therein lies her gift.
