    1. One of my favorite short story collections of all time is Black Tickets, a masterpiece written by Jayne Anne Phillips in the 1970s. So hauntingly poetic and impressive were these stories written about rootless misfits by a young and relatively unknown writer that a giant of the short story genre, Raymond Carver, contributed a blurb to the book’s back cover. He wrote: “These stories of America’s disenfranchised are unlike any in our literature. She is an original, and this book of hers is a [...]

    2. This book was definitely different and odd but overall I liked it. I will admit that I was expecting al the stories to be about the same very short length and was quite surprised to find the first story - Trailer Girl - to be so long. I wound up becoming fairly involved with that story, and then the others I wasn't so sure of. I'll probably go back and look through some of them again though. I found this book by running a search for female authors - I do that regularly - and then I plugged in so [...]

    3. Though the first few lines of Terese Svoboda’s Trailer Girl and Other Stories are jarring with its use of present tense first person narrative, further reading reveals the novel for what it really is: a delightfully crafted piece of poetic prose. Svoboda’s use of poetic language creates an emotional connection with her audience that allows the reader to feel as well as see the events. Furthermore, this language assists in showing the world through the eyes of a woman scarred by childhood tra [...]

    4. I just read the new paperback edition from the University of Nebraska Press and it really bulldozed me expectations. A scintillating collision of uber literary style and low brow story. Full review to come

    5. I didn't take to these stories at all. The language was odd and terse and there was an underlying violence to each story that was unnerving.

    6. Terese Svoboda has it!!! She weaves atmosphere in a way many writers can't doYou can just feel the landscape, the weather, the emotions. Beautiful writing.
