I would enjoy receiving short story collections, preferably by only one author per book, and preferably by a female author. Suggested authors include Willa Cather, Alice Walker, Ann Beattie, Joyce Carol Oates, Flannery O'Connor, or Alice Munro (although I have or had several collections of her short stories). Please don't feel you must limit yourself to those authors; I have enjoyed being introduced to new authors in the past.
Don't get this!
Science fiction or horror collections.
Please select good quality paperbacks (or hardbacks) instead of mass market books. I am allergic to books printed on poor quality paper. Also, I would prefer not to receive large books with numerous pages, which would be heavy and hard to hold. Also, please check my complete collection instead of just my library. When choosing books, don't disregard authors for whom I have withdrawn titles. I need to keep withdrawing books since we are trying to downsize.
sallylou61's Secret Santa is RiaWritten. Help RiaWritten pick the right book.
RidgewayGirl: What Luck, This Life by Kathryn Schwille is a novel composed of interlinked short stories. The writing is reminiscent of Alice Monro and Elizabeth Strout.
She might also enjoy Life in the Air Ocean by Sylvia Foley or Larry's Party by Carol Shields. Both are interlinked short stories that are superbly written. (Sun, 18 Nov 2018 11:36:43 -0500)
