    Clearly I have to have a book to accompany a William Faulkner book I need something to let me escape the Faulkner incomprehensibility So I found this Ellen Gilchrist on my shelf I cannot remember it right off but see that it is a used book of short stories by a Southern woman All categories that I can easily imagine myself acquiring at some past point I get on short story jags regularly So this just might be a perfect choice to balance Faulkner.I looked up The Age of Miracles on GR to check a fe [...]

    this is a kind of book that you don t understand if you like it while you read it I was expecting much , because the idea is so good and original also I think the characters could ve been chosen better.

    Meh is the best word to describe what I think of this book I am astonished by the amount of 4 5 star reviews on this I don t always tend to agree with the majority on most books, but at least I find the reviews and opinions understandable and valid Even if I don t agree with other people, I can usually at least understand why they like or dislike something when I read their opinions I have no idea how anyone could rate this boring, drag on book 5 stars, and have actually enjoyed it I only finish [...]

    The short stories had a string connecting them the locations of Arkansas, New Orleans women characters with a strong interest in sex drinking and drugs and artists of various types Right away I wondered if the author was clearly a writer who likes to drink, likes men, likes to go party in New Orleans The stories focused on different characters in this world, including a young boy whose mother is the drinking, man chasing writer, or a teenage girl who is observing her parents circle of poets and [...]

    I just love the way that Ellen Gilchrist writes It is so smooth and creamy it s like drinking a mug of hot chocolate I have read several of her books in the past The topics are not always fun and light but the writing is just superb This is a book of short stories, which I normally don t read The reason is that if I m enjoying a story, I want it to continue I m not ready for it to end That was the case with this book It was almost frustrating but I got over it as soon as I started the next story [...]

    I love all the books I have read by Ellen Gilcrist She uses the same characters in different stories and settings Even though this is a book of short stories, they do tie together at the end I can always identify with someone that she writes about This time it was the woman who needed to write to be whole, even when she knew that it was causing such pain for the rest of her family What i can relate to is her saying, The happier I am, the I love you.


    Andrée

    Lovely substantial short stories based around New Orleans that kept my interest Some are linked or look at the same events through the eyes of different characters The women are not all heroines but often admirable not least for their attitude towards sex lovers marriage self realisation.

    The writing is fantastic, but I found the stories repetitive Perhaps that is how authors tie together a short story collection, but it was tiresome by the last for me Overall though, it is a worthy, quick read I especially enjoyed her theme of gratitude in the face of tragedy, and there was abundant humor and love of life.


    Hollis

    After loving hers of years ago, this was very uneven some stories were good, others just flat

    I probably shouldn t rate it because I didn t read all of it I read a few stories and couldn t connect with any of the narrators at all, so I took it back to the library.


    Melanie

    As the Washington Post has said, To say that Ellen Gilchrist can write is to say that Placido Domingo can sing All you need to do is listen Reviews I concur


    Mary

    Great southern author I think most of the stories are based on her own life loosely, if anything but they are funny with that humor that only us native southern belles can truly appreciate.


    Jules

    Great book for beginner new age


    Neena

    Collection of short stories by this critically acclaimed author Romance is the focus, and these stories are funny and tender.
