She's such a good writer, and her use of humor is a bonus. She should always do short stories--she's a master! Loved the book. Will read it again.

Ms. Moore's most recent collection of short stories leaves one wanting more Moore. The author's interesting points of views coupled with her unique rendering of how outside reality rolls across the conscious (and unconscious) mind are very enlightening. Her humor delights, and her ability to conjure contemporary points of reference are well done. This book definitely makes one want to read more of Moore (couldn't resist).

Moore, as usual, provides a hodge-podge of grand and clumsy works in her short story collection, Bark. Her themes seem to revolve around triangulated relationships: two divorcees and one of their children, two failed musicians and a bachelor benefactor, etc. Some of these tales--the first one especially--excel and depict Moore as a master of her craft. Others portray a stumbling writer without clear genius of her characters. For the first reason I know of Moore. For the second I love her. Bark is a fantastic and read-worthy collection.
