Circling the Drain

Amanda Davis

it’s kind of morbid that i sought this book out after reading Davis’s obituary in march. she also published a novel entitled Wonder When You’ll Miss Me.

the stories are either pretty good or pretty darn good, occasionally with these fantastical elements that are really interesting. a couple of stories read something like folk tales or fairy tales. it’s just bizarre that this is now half of her life’s work.

definitely a good read for the short story obsessed.
