The Boys of My Youth by Jo Ann Beard

The Boys of My Youth The Boys of My Youth by Jo Ann Beard

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I'm normally not a big short stories fan, but this writer knocked my socks into Peru with her descriptions of everyday things. You would never think to describe things the way she does. She could make a soggy dish towel in a kitchen sink seem interesting! The essay "The Fourth State of Matter" was intense, harrowing, captivating. She is truly a gifted writer. I hope she has a novel in the works!
