More About the Author

Kelly Cherry is the author of twenty-two books of fiction (long and short), poetry, memoir, essay, and criticism. She has also published nine chapbooks and translations of two classical dramas. Her most recent titles are A Kind of Dream (interlinked stories), selected by Library Journal as a Best Indie book, and The Life and Death of Poetry (March 2013). Her fiction has appeared in Best American Short Stories, Prize Stories: The O. Henry Awards, The Pushcart Prize, and New Stories from the South and has won three PEN/Syndicated Fiction awards. Her story collection The Society of Friends (which, she says, has nothing to do with the Society of Friends) received the Dictionary of Literary Biography Award for Short Fiction for the best collection published in 1999. For her poetry she received the inaugural Hanes Prize for a body of work. Other awards are listed on her Wikipedia page. Her new and selected poems, titled Hazard and Prospect, was a finalist for the Poets' Award. Cherry says, "I write because I have ideas that can be realized only by writing. Luckily, I love to write. And I love to hear from those who read my work and respond to the heart of what I write." Next year will see publication of another book of stories.

Just on a lark, I browsed around and stumbled across this book which I'd read a long time ago. I'd even written a mini-review of it for a literary journal. And yet, I remember next to nothing about this book! I remember it as being light-hearted, unconventional, a breeze to read, and humorous.

This is a not a substantial novel/story collection (I suspect you'd have to read her other novel We Can Still Be Friends for something more meaty). Still it's a fun read, probably good chick lit and K.C. is a talented writer.

One of the crazy things about amazon is that certain books (perfectly fine ones) just get no feedback at all. Many sell for under a $1, and even if you factor in the shipping and handling, it's still a great deal.

Format: Paperback
A masterful book. Beautifully written, an array of characters so alive they leap off the page. The inter-related stories move from an early seeming simplicity to an extraordinary depth by the end, full of passion and intelligence -- as one reviewer called it, "a kind of prayer."
The main character, Nina, begins in despair and ends not in triumph, but apparently headed in that direction -- which becomes clearer if you read the second volume in this series of books, The Society of Friends. (The third in the series hasn't appeared yet.)
I've read this book three times now (loaned out my hardback and it wasn't returned!) and it improves on every reading, because it is so full of humanity and life and so subtle -- you find more and more the deeper you delve into this amazing novel.
I recommend anything by this writer -- poems, stories, novels. Read her latest, We Can Still Be Friends.

I could not get into this book, could not even get past chapter 2. The protaganist was too whiny, obsessed and frankly and idiot.
