What I Loved/Thought:
They say home is where the heart is, but I’m here to tell you that my heart loves Anderson Cooper.
🌿I’m going to divulge my age a bit here, but I can still remember watching Anderson Cooper as a young pup on air during Channel One news every morning in middle school. (You know.. that channel for teens that aired current events at the time. 🙋♀️ .. Anyone??)
I later discovered him as various news anchors and then as best bud to Andy Cohen, which I also adore, and looked forward to watching him on What Watch Happens Live as the featured guest of honor.
But I digress.. I loved these short stories by @r.l._maizes and was pleasantly surprised by their humor. While I don’t typically read a lot of short stories, I highly recommend these!
Praise: (courtesy of Amazon)
“Maizes’s direct manner of storytelling and her imperfect yet unmistakably human characters are sure to win over readers.”
“Each succinct fictional nugget rolls inexorably along its own quirky trajectory, arrives at its own unexpected destination, and never overstays its welcome … this is a book about the heart. Breaking news: Maizes’ gently witty and vaguely weird collection is well worth reading.”
–Kirkus, STARRED REVIEW
“Told with humor and wisdom, these charming stories burst with possibility: At any moment, a character might risk all, or the world might tilt on its axis. Here is a wildly entertaining new voice, one to revel in.”
–Rebecca Makkai, author of The Great Believers
