Ellen Gilchrist's short stories have been loved and followed by warmly partisan readers for almost twenty years. Both newcomers and those who know her work well will be delighted by the richness and impact of this collection. Chosen by the author herself, the stories follow recurring characters like parallel threads in the warp of a fabric; the weft is provided by Gilchrist's distinctive voice, humor, and talent. Except for her distracting habit of attaching the final consonant of one word to the beginning of the next one ("Lisa an' Di? Lisa an' die?" Oh, "Lisa and I."), Mary Peiffer's reading is sympathetic and thoroughly likable. B.G. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
