|The Best Book to Read First||Moody's Short Fiction|
|The Ice Storm|
The Ice Storm follows the disconnected Hood family during an eventful and eventually wrenching Thanksgiving weekend in 1973 that is beset not only by the social ills of the time (Vietnam, Watergate) but also a violent pre-winter storm.
This acclaimed collection of Moody's short fiction was welcomed on the cover of The New York Times Book Review upon its release, announcing Moody as one of the literary wunderkinds of his generation.
