Book Reviews

I was one of the writers (Uncustomary Reviewers) for The Uncustomary Book Review.  Below are links to my book reviews:

  1. On Cowboys Are My Weakness by Pam Houston
  2. On When The Elephants Dance by Tess Uriza Holthe
  3. On The Faith of a Writer: Life, Craft, Art by Joyce Carol Oates
  4. On Spare Change by Bette Lee Crosby
  5. On A Visit From the Goon Squad by Janet Egan
  6. On Wax by Therese Ambrosi Smith
  7. On Women’s Short Stories Volume 1 read by Eve Karpf and Liza Ross

My reading recommendations are still in the works.   In the meanwhile, please feel free to read my essay on literature which influenced the craft strategies used in my short story collection, Family Recipes.
