Being Normal

I've put a new review up on bookersatz this morning.

The review is by me! And it's of 'Being Normal' by Stephen Shieber which was very kindly sent to me by Tonto books.

Stephen blogs here.

Oh, I love that book... it's everything short stories should be about (for me).

Off to read your review to see what you made of it!

I've spent the last hour reading blogs (instead of writing, alas) and I seem to be continually posting comments right after you. Funny. We seem to be on the same wave length today. So I thought I'd say hi. "Hi!"

Do you think books of Short Stories are perhaps coming back into fashion? I always think it is one of the hardest ways to write - to get an idea over in a nutshell, so to speak. I enjoyed these.

Great review, Helen.

Stephen Shieber said...

Thank you so much for such a lovely review, Helen. It's a privilege to gain feedback (whether good or bad) and to know that the stories have affected people enough for them to tell others about it.

You have brightened my day while I'm struggling to impose order on my unruly novel characters!

Great review Helen. The book sounds like just my cup of tea.

Spiral - glad to hear you loved it too!

Sue - Hi! Blogging synchronicity - how great is that?

Weaver - I really hope so, that would be great.

Amanda - thanks!

Stephen - thanks for popping over. I can't wait to read the novel!

Lane - I can recommend it x

BT said...

Excellent review Helen. I could quite fancy reading that.

Fiction is stranger than fact, but fact is far more annoying! Off to read your review.

BT - yes, it was excellent!

Leigh - indeed it is!
