2 Down, 50 To Go, "Like You'd Understand, Anyway: Stories" (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

If you read McSweeney's as religiously as I do, you are no stranger to the short fiction of Jim Shepard. These are stories of intimately personal conflict set against huge tableaus (Chernobyl, the space race, wars). I didn't make a list of my favorite short fiction collections last year, but if I do in 2008, Like You'd Understand, Anyway: Stories will almost surely claim a much deserved spot. If you enjoy short stories, give this collection a chance.

My next book is Julie Doucet's graphic novel, 365 Days: A Diary.
