Review From User :
Please, do not cross your arms over your chest, stubbornly protesting that you can't read short stories because you aren't given enough time to know the characters.
That you're not going to invest in 50 pages of something only to have a new story suddenly taken away from you.
Blah. Blah. Blah.
Get over yourselves, people.
When a character is written well, you can NEVER get enough of them. After 945 pages of Lonesome Dove, readers wanted more, more, and more of Gus McCrae. Larry McMurtry broke all of his damn pens writing prequels so fans would stop cherry-bombing his windows.
Almost as soon as Elizabeth Strout presented fans with more Olive in the sequel Olive, Again, ungrateful fans like me could only stamp their angry feet and demand WHERE'S THE PREQUEL
None of this passion has to do with the length of a story, it has to do with the writing and the storytelling.
And the sublime writing and storytelling here go together like peanut butter and jelly. . . or more like mutton and potatoes, given the sparse locale.
And you won't have enough. You won't ever be able to get enough.
So, get over it, and read this anyway.
Damn it, Ms. Munro! Am I to read everything that you've written now
I'm not immortal, lady.
