The Folly of Loving Life

(2016)
A collection of stories by

 
 
This collection of linked stories encompasses decades in the lives of a cast of characters, and in that span of time, or of pages, life is somehow conveyed as simultaneously both compressed and expansive. It's a collection that captures the way it feels to live a long time and watch those years pass in a blink. These are stories full of a rugged humor, set in a city that was one brutal and gorgeous, but has grown to be commodified, Portland, Oregon.
Enter this book for it's beauty and comedy. Stay for its wisdom. Leave with your heart in your hands, an ache in your soul and your life always that question out ahead, just a little bit tilted this round.
