    This is one of the very best story collections I ve ever read madewonderful by my own memories of a southern upbringing, relatives, and friends Surprised I hadn t come across it before, and I plan to read all her others Just splendid

    I enjoyed these stories Very southern I found I could read them one right after another Needed to be reading something else in between these stories.

    I really like short stories, but I rarely read them, because I get frustrated when they don t match the times I have available for reading nothing worse than having a lunch break end when I m only a couple pages into a second or third story But I made an exception because I really love Gilcrhist, and I hadn t found one of her books in a long time in the thrift shops I frequent This book is filled with quirky characters in interesting situations, filled with the moments people s opinions cha I really like short stories, but I rarely read them, because I get frustrated when they don t match the times I have available for reading nothing worse than having a lunch break end when I m only a couple pages into a second or third story But I made an exception because I really love Gilcrhist, and I hadn t found one of her books in a long time in the thrift shops I frequent This book is filled with quirky characters in interesting situations, filled with the moments people s opinions change about the people around them, filled with humor and sorrow and anger and hope Good things happen to characters who seem to be decent Babies are conceived, aborted, dreamed of Old people remember the past, await futures which do not come, and thoroughly inhabit the present There are high schoolers, post college age characters, and many people older than me A delight to read

    I ve read Gilchrist s books for years, and I ve always been amazed with her courage and her flat out setting down of the truth Her characters have aged right along with her, and with me, and it s wonderful to rediscover the characters over and over again.The only complain I had with this collection is it lacked the connection that most of Gilchrist s books display Some stories latched together, but then we were spinning off someplace else I kept waiting for the final loop de loop narration th I ve read Gilchrist s books for years, and I ve always been amazed with her courage and her flat out setting down of the truth Her characters have aged right along with her, and with me, and it s wonderful to rediscover the characters over and over again.The only complain I had with this collection is it lacked the connection that most of Gilchrist s books display Some stories latched together, but then we were spinning off someplace else I kept waiting for the final loop de loop narration that would bring it all together in the end, but I didn t get it.I think, though, if I hadn t been expecting it, anticipating it, I would have been as sucked in as I was the first time I read Gilchrist and had no idea what was coming So, ultimately, I still loved it What a fabulous writer

    Short stories by Ellen Gilchrist are fun reading, highly entertaining, endearing, and full of realism that doesn t hurt, too much Most of these stories are set in New Orleans, which is what caught my eye in the first place.

    These elegant and well crafted stories always remind me of lazy summers spent on hammocks in the South Read to relax and revel in the beauty of a truly great writer.
