Mrs. Somebody Somebody: Fiction

Mrs. Somebody Somebody - Tracy Winn The thing about a collection of short stories, for me, is that I almost always want more. I'm too greedy for short stories, I guess. When characters or what's going on in their lives are interesting, I see no reason for their tales to end so abruptly. Which is why, even though I really enjoyed this collection, I am not giving it more stars (although 3.5 is probably closer to my genuine rating) or putting it on the keeper shelf. I know I won't read them again, but I also think I'll remember the people who live in this fictional version of Lowell, Massachusetts for a long, long time. Also, the fact that this is a debut work, makes me excited, because I think this author really has a lot of talent at making you see her characters as real people.
