I m pretty rusty on writing lengthy reviews This book was so damn good that my review will never do justice There are few books that come along that I want to savor rather than plow through but I took my time with this one I read only a few short stories at a time so that they wouldn t blur together but would still impress me with the way they intertwined and kept bringing me to a familiar feeling I sort of spent the whole time with my heart breaking I kept wanting the men in my life to be like the men in these stories with all their longing and flaws I then realized that they probably wereMy favorites were The Watch Juggernaut Wild Horses and In Ruth s Country Sidenote I thought In Ruth s Country would be impossible for me to enjoy as the copy of the book I purchased had markings on that story and that story only THANK GOD that were so elementary and seemed so far off the mark such a stretch to tie things together that it really distracted me Thankfully it only took six pages for me to overlook this and really appreciate this oneBack to my favorites they are my favorites in how memorable the stories are as a whole Yet I also keep finding myself thinking about snippets of Mississippi which I believe is the shortest of them all at a little less than 8 pages This is the writing that I crave I know it is something special when I want to read every single word This is one that will never leave my shelf because I ll be reading it again and again when I need something to stir me up and make me really feel something and transport me to a place that is all too real rather than the fantasy world of so many other books
