5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Laurie Colwin
I'd read Colwin's longer works, but these stories were a revelation -- her miraculously natural writing, and her ability to get characters just right. One of the world's most entertaining writers, ever, with heart and soul.

3.0 out of 5 stars Definitely not her best
I found Passion and Affect to be too dated and slightly strange to be enjoyable. Yes, I plugged through it because I had enjoyed Laurie Colwin's other books. I think several of the story endings are abrupt and the plots just a little strained. It wasn't much money to spend, but I would have rather read something more enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Passion and Affect, August 8, 2008

This review is from: Passion and Affect (Paperback)
Laurie Colwin is a wonderful, quirky writer. Her characters are well-drawn and altogether fascinating. I highly recommend this book! I plan to get her other books, but with larger type than this one--teeny!

This review is from: Passion and Affect (Paperback)
There's something so great about the way Laurie Colwin writes--she is an avid observer, and her language is always right on. This book is no exception. I enjoyed it very much.
