Great short stories, great writing...
Percy's love of family & the outdoors are ever present throughout the book, each story draws you in.<BR/><BR/>Out of the ten stories in the book, five are really, really oustanding! <BR/><BR/>Refresh, Refresh <BR/>The Caves in Oregon <BR/>The Woods <BR/>Meltdown <BR/>When the Bear Came <BR/><BR/>I randomnly came across this book at B & N and took a chance on it, it paid off, highly recommended! <BR/><BR/>This is Benjamin Percy's 2nd novel of short stories, his 1st book, "The Language of Elk" is also very good!! <BR/><BR/>I've never read anything with the type of vivid descriptions that Percy uses in his stories. <BR/><BR/>He is a young, very talented writer who isnt really well known (yet) and I will definitely read his next book....

Blends the best of genre and literary fiction. An excellent collection.
Benjamin Percy is one of my favorite authors writing today. He's able to mix genre fiction with literary fiction to create captivating, eloquent stories. Loved this book. Also, check out his book, The Wilding: A Novel, which was fantastic.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Scrappy young men fist fight for fun in order to stop themselves from worrying about their dads deployed to Iraq in title story Refresh, Refresh, and the tension doesn't stop there. Remarkable stories, violent and beautiful, about the America of today and the place we might become. Percy is a master and it's no wonder this collection catapulted him to deserved critical fame.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
