Journal Entry 3 by wingGoryDetailswing at Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Sunday, November 17, 2019
I claimed this softcover at today's BookCrossing meetup in Porter Square. I do enjoy short stories!

Later: A good mix, some dreamlike, some gritty - and, of course, some more enjoyable for me than others. The ones I was most drawn to include:

"The Dungeon Master" by Sam Lipsyte, in which a sadly-dysfunctional D&D group cope with real life - not always in the best ways.

"ID" by Joyce Carol Oates, which leads up to a young girl's having to identify the battered and drowned body of her mother - a wrenching situation indeed.

Released 6 mos ago (3/24/2020 UTC) at Little Free Library, 205 Hartwell Ave. in Littleton, Massachusetts USA

I left this book in the delightful repurposed-icebox Little Free Library on this surprisingly snowy-for-late-March day; hope someone enjoys it!
