River Teeth, by David James Duncan, was wonderful. The book alternates between memories (the river teeth) and short stories. I won’t spoil it by telling you the definition of river teeth, which is the first memory.
His writing of memories – even brief flashes of memory – inspire me to write my memories, even when they aren’t full stories. His short stories, inspired by those memories, are wonderfully written, and while there’s no common thread, they are all well worth reading. Highly recommended.
Next on the list, I’m reading “Of Mice And Men” (Steinbeck) and “Tower of Glass” (Silverberg). I think I might give up on “Persuasion” for now. Jane Austen is always an awful lot of work.
