Stories ePUBWhat a great collection of stories I picked this up after reading a Samantha Lan Chang interview where she cites Gish as a similar author Gish has a wonderful roughness to her writing a deadpan humor that eases the harshness of the stories While I wouldn't necessarily compare these stories with Chang's I'm eager to pick up a novel House House Home the last story in the book really got into the uestion of voluntary exclusion Juxtaposing an eccentric and affluent art professor with Pammie a child of immigrant parents who was raised poor and with struggle told a bigger story of how we ascribe ourselves to an identify just as much as we rebel against that which we came from

Stories ePUBI really enjoyed this book Although from skimming the other reviews it seems like some felt that Jen is better suited to novels than short stories I disagree Sometimes Jen's novels feel a little schizophrenic to me in the middle like Jen loses her attention span and is racing around from perspective to perspective In the short stories obviously Jen doesn't need to maintain her attention span through 300 pages and I feel the book is better for it I really enjoy

Stories ePUBLord this was boring First of all it's short stories which I tend to disklike bc I want from my characters and time Secondly the short stories were too short haha And really it was almost like they were trying too hard to be uirky or something I just really thoroughly did not enjoy reading this The only reason I did was bc my Italian mother in law gave it to me as a joke for Christmas as the new solo Irish girl in the family Here was the rub it's about Asians not Irishmen HAHA the joke is on me So I don't recommend this on any level

Stories ePUBLove me some Gish Jen Her writing is compassionate whip smart and always a delight to read I didn't actually find most of these stories to be nearly as good as her novels and there are definitely several duds in this collection Duncan in China in particular is kind of a snoozer but still definitely worth a read
