Surprising stories. Were very easy to read even if the subjects can be hard to experience. An inspiration to new writers.

Format: Paperback
This book is like...well an old Gershwin tune that has specific personal memoires attached. Once you read the stories you will never quite be able to get them out of your mind. The title piece recollects places the narrator has lived over her life (and I guarantee you will be doing the same thing). I played my brother's clarinet, so that story rings uncomfortably true.

Some like, "The Ballad Solemn of Lady Malena" and "The Last Haloween" are harrowing pieces you want to skip over, but can't; whereas "The Second Rule of Yoga" lists questions all of us have but are too ashamed to ask.

Laura Maylene Walter is not like any other short story writer I am familiar with. You almost feel, as a reader, you are writing the content. It connects that well. I couldn't put Living Arrangements down. My only wish is that it were my name as author on the cover.

These stories are thought-provoking and beautifully written, carefully exploring the passions, struggles and memories of the central characters. The themes unfold naturally, with a deft touch and humor. Each story is savored and remembered long after finishing it. Laura Walter is very talented and has a bright future.
