“Hall of Small Mammals” would be worth reading just for the opening story alone, “Shirley Temple Three”. But fortunately, there’s plenty more. The stories in this amazing collection ranged from good to excellent. Some of them were weird, some funny, some surrealist… but all of them were smart, original and beautifully written. But even in those quirky stories about a cloned dwarf mammoth or a mysterious extremely infectious disease, the author was in fact telling us about real people, about human feelings, relationships and emotions.
A collection of stories and characters that linger in your mind days after finishing the book. As I said before, I liked all of them, but I’d like to highlight “Grasshopper Kings”, “More Soon”, “We of the Present Age” and “Shirley Temple Three”. I find hard to believe that this solid collection is Mr. Pierce’s debut, and I’m looking forward to read his second book. ( )
