Reading this collection of essays is so delightful, it's easy to forget how challenging it is to craft such perfect stories. Ann Patchett manages to describe ordinary events of her life "lived close to home" in straightforward prose that mines daily life for jewels of wisdom. It's funny, sad, provocative and thoughtful, and if that isn't enough, maybe this anecdote will show how much I love her work: after reading this collection, I immediately went out and bought five of her other books, which I devoured back to back in one summer.
