You’re next Maile Meloy

One winter day I was browsing the new arrivals in the fiction section of the Harold Washington Library when I chanced upon Maile Meloy’s collection of short stories Half in Love.  When I read the first story I was hooked and swallowed the book in a couple of gulps.  I see she has a new collection of stories titled Both Ways Is the Only Way I Want It. The NYT Sunday Book Review gave it the lead review this past weekend.

I admire Meloy’s prose style.  She writes crisply and cleanly.  She wastes no motion.  The NYT review indicates I’ll enjoy the new collection as much as the first.  Hence, her new book will be my next fiction reading selection.
