    I love anything and everything that Ellen Gilchrist has ever written Fell completely in love with her work when she came to one of my writing seminars in college and when I heard her read her work She has a smooth, funny, confident, dreamy Southern voice that stays with you.

    This was the first book by Ellen Gilchrist that I ever read, but it was not the last in fact, after checking this book of short stories out from my local library, I fell in love with this author and read all her other books Being a scientist, it was the title that caught my attention I no longer remember why the book has this title or even very much about any of the individual stories It was 20 years ago I read the book, but here is one thing I do remember characters in one story would pop up in [...]

    I just love how simply Ellen Gilchrist can tell a story She has that simplicity that Hemingway has, which is really deceptive You can be reading her work and think, This is fourth grade reading level, but somehow, there is so much going on emotionally and in the subtext.One thing that I have noticed is that various women identify with different characters of hers VERY strongly I have friends who want to be Rhoda Manning I love the Nora Jane stories because I wish I were Nora Jane I think this is [...]

    When I first read Ellen Gilchrist s short stories, in high school, I decided that maybe novels weren t the only fiction worth reading after all Her short stories are slices of stories, complete unto themselves, but feeling as if they were fully alive before and after you met them too Her characters are so real you think she must be writing about herself until you meet the next one, and then the next Light Can Be Both Wave and Particle is one of my favorite books of hers modern despite its twenty [...]

    Fully one third of this collection is taken up by the story Mexico , which features the antics of Rhoda Manning and her brother and cousin, and most of the rest of the stories focus on and feature familiar characters from her other volumes, though any of them can be read as stand alones The oddest story is the eponymous one which focuses on a Chinese medical lab worker who just happens to be connected to the story of Nora Jane Whittington This is an entertaining and eminently readable collection [...]

    I normally am not a big fan of the art of short stories, but this little book of Ellen Gilchrist s makes me eat my words Perhaps it was the interrelated aspect of many of the stories that settled my brain Normally, it s the abrupt hop from one scenario to another that jars me This formed a fragmented storyline of a short, introducing me to full fleshed characters and delicious prose I d be hard pressed to pick a favorite, as the flow has gone to almost seamless in my mind, despite a foray of the [...]

    This book of short stories continues the adventures of Nora Jane pregnant with twins by two different men , Traceleen, Rhoda, and others.My favorite lines, from the title story If I enter into this moment, I will be changed forever If I refuse this moment then I will go about the world as an old man goes, with no hope, no songs to sing, no longing or desire, no miracles of sunlight So I will allow this to happen to me As if a man can refuse his destiny As if the choice were mine Let it come to m [...]

    Every time I read an Ellen Gilchrist story, whether I ve read it 50 times before or for the first time, I feel a familiarity that is also somehow still fresh Like an anecdote your great aunt shares at dinner parties a few times a year She is an incredible story teller who isn t as celebrated as she deserves.

    I loved this book so much when it first came out that I m a bit afraid to read it again as I may not feel the same magic way Love that the characters are often deeply flawed, but so human and compelling and authentic It seems as if the only true fault, among all the vices, is the lack of being true to yourself.

    Reading Gilchrist requires patience because only a small part of each character s story is shared in each of her books This collection of short stories included Mexico which seemed like a spoof of the Sun Also Rises by Hemingway who she does mention in her 1st book as one of the saddest stories she had ever read These stories have sad moments and lots of fun moments, poignant as always.

    I know this is a pretty straightforward type of storytelling, but the woman can write beautifully She s from Arkansas I like Southern writers I say again I love the short story that has her characters on the Golden Gate Bridge during the earthquakeat s a beautiful story

    love love love gilchrist and her setting the stories in mainly either the lousiana coast even beloved mandeville and san francisco makes me very happy.

    I love this author and the sampling of various characters was a treat Be prepared for salty pirate language of which I am a recovering junkie so it was fine with me.
