Read full description of the books Mendocino: And Other Stories:I don't normally make a point to read short stories but I saw this collection in a used bookstore a while back and I had enjoyed the author's well known novel, The Dive from Clausen's Pier, so much that I thought it was worth a look.
I think I enjoyed this even more than the novel. I think she has a gift for writing short stories in particular. She's able to establish (for me) personal connections to characters in such a short amount of time in that you feel intimately connected to and invested in characters and experiences in just a few pages.
Short story collections are also nice for people who like to read sporadically---you can pick it up and put it down multiple times without losing a grip on the story (as I've often done with novels that I started reading and forgot about!)
Definitely worth a read.
