Kate Says: "Reading Is Fun!"

Like most of you I'm an avid reader. I'm hoping to re-connect with old friends, make new friends, and of course spread the love of reading and writing around to everyone!

May We Shed These Human Bodies: Stories By: Amber Sparks

May We Shed These Human Bodies - Amber Sparks

I read this book in honor of my Uncle Frank: 7/22/1944 - 7/21/2014


It's a book he'd be proud of because it's a deceptively slim volume in which no words are minced. It's a book of flash fiction that packs a punch.


Some of my favorites are:


* The Monstrous Sadness of Mythical Creatures

* May We Shed These Human Bodies

* When the Weather Changes You

* All the Imaginary People are Better at Life


All in all, an impressive debut by an author I will be keeping my eye on and looking forward to reading more of in the future.


I bought this book at the popup book fair at The Earnest Hemingway Museum in Oak Park, IL, and is now in my permanent collection. Some of my favorite reads have been from small publishers in my area.
