    Little Raw Souls Stories Kindle á Little Raw Epub / little free, souls epub, stories download, Little Raw book, Little Raw Souls Stories PDFThe craft in these stories is impressive They each seem as intricately developed as a novel Schwartz paints such a complete world in such a small space The variety is impressive as well though there is a similarity running throughout in the emotionally intimate moments at which Schwartz catches his characters I love the soft compassionate feel that I get when facing those intimate moments the humanity of the characters In short wonderful stories

    Little Raw Souls Stories Kindle á Little Raw Epub / little free, souls epub, stories download, Little Raw book, Little Raw Souls Stories PDFI have been following Steven Schwartz since his great 1994 novel Therapy which still ranks among my top 5 all time favorite novels That was published after 2 fantastic story collections and then another novel came out a few years later But over the past decade plus his writing has only been in appearing in literary magazines and while I have been able to catch a few along the way I was excited to learn he had another collectionHe really is a masterful writer Many better known writers are famous for their talent with a

    Little Raw Souls Stories Kindle á Little Raw Epub / little free, souls epub, stories download, Little Raw book, Little Raw Souls Stories PDFSchwartz is a talented author and his craft really shines through in this collection There was a bit of irony for me as I started the book while in the Philadelphia airport waiting to board a flight to Phoenix If you've read the collection you'll know that there are many strange connections in the stories to my circumstances at the time I found this eerie but the coincidences also helped me better relate to the stories Overall the number one thing I enjoyed about this collection is the reality that we're all little raw souls I love that description and how we see the rawness and soul of each character I found something to enjoy in each story but Bless Everybody felt too familiar similar to something I've read before which made it predictable and The Last Communist started off great but felt way too rushed at the end My favorites were Stranger Absolute Zero and Indie which I especially liked the format of

    Little Raw Souls Stories Kindle á Little Raw Epub / little free, souls epub, stories download, Little Raw book, Little Raw Souls Stories PDFI'd not heard of Steven Schwartz or his publisher Autumn House before reading this so had no idea what to expect What I probably hadn't expected was this set of perfectly crafted poignant emotionally complex tales each with depth than many a novel They're all pretty conventional nothing showy or experimental here but each has the feel of real life with characters muddling their way through as best they can Not a single story is less than very good and the majority are excellent Easily the best collection I've read so far this year
