I Love furman’s title, ‘drinking with the cook’ and that connotation is infused into much of the story collection ranging over lots of parts of usa and Europe and beyond. There are spies, householders, and yes, cooks. This is 1st furman ive seen or read, but she has more ss’s and novels too. this title is from an “obscure” publisher: winedale publishing, though has a ‘misprint’ of windale ( would never make it in the “real” library world, ha) and perhaps publisher is long go [...]

This is written by my first college creative writing teacher at UT. Very good so far, and I can hear her voice explaining why these stories work in my head.Good enough book, but I got busy with school and it came up due at the library. Will return to it another day I suppose

There are occasional gems here -- phrases I wish I'd come up with -- but this is the most depressing thing I've read in a long time, maybe ever.

Short stories dripping with isolation and loneliness like the morning dew. Don't read if depressed. Or maybe read it and realize how many ways we have to isolate ourselves.
