Stories you can't forget...
I started reading this book thinking the stories were somewhat unusual, but entertaining. With each story I read I became more involved with the book. I couldn't leave the book home, had to carry it in my purse, always. After I'd read some of the stories several times, I decided to set the book on my coffee table. It's been on the table or in my bag for a year. I can't put it away. The stories tell of places I want to be, characters I want to spend time with. The story 'Swans' is so perfectly constructed that you can taste the snow, feel the wind on your face, see your own hands crinkle with age as you read. 'Two Deer' is a story so pure I began remembering it as my own memory, confusing Rick Bass's town, with my own. This book opens up new worlds, different ways of looking at what's in front of us. I urge everyone who loves a good story to get their hands on this book. Not my copy, though. I keep it very close by.
