16 Down, 36 To Go

Jenny and the Jaws of Life, by Jincy Willett, is a collection of dark, well-formed psychologically thrilling stories. Though a bit uneven and at times seemingly repetitive in its characters, the book holds much promise for a first collection of short fiction. I am intrigued enough by Willett's craft to put her only novel, Winner of the National Book Award: A Novel of Fame, Honor, and Really Bad Weather, on my future reading list.

Next up: Small Wonder, a collection of essays by one of my wife's favorite novelists, Barbara Kingsolver.
