People Tell Me Things: Stories by David Finkle
It's high time I wrote up reviews for all these books on my desk that I read during the Wicked Wildfire Readathon! I'll start with the TBR titles, since I'm extra-late with those.
David Finkle writes about the arts for various New Yorky publications, and here he was written a collection of short stories that are about the same world. The stories are kind of rambly--I mean, they have a point and they're not over-long, but they're kind of like a guy at a coffee shop telling you a random story about his life. Artists, writers, and film people wander in and out and get up to things. And all of it takes place in Manhattan, with very, very New York sensibilities. It's probably quite literary, but in a way that I don't really get.
I'm not really much on New York stories, so I wasn't enthralled. Meh.
