Events seem normal enough at first, but then, suddenly, everyone is using fire poles instead of stairs to get from floor to floor, and you realize you're wearing pajamas. Literary Criticism Nonfiction. Publisher: Hamilton Stone.

It doesn't drone on and bury you in explanation, examples, and irrelevant backstory as some books of this nature are wont to do. It gives you the point, a relevant example, caveats, and then lets you think for yourself on the merits of it. Perfect. Some of the stand-out topics for me, paraphrased: Salary negotiations are a load of BS Meetings, especially large ones, are an ineffective waste of time. Doubly-so if they have no agenda. Unregulated open office plans are terrible. They invite distraction and hamper productivity.

Lying in the corner of my world Didn't hear a sound Hiding under my head Never to be found. How have you been today? I woke up but it didn't go away. Heading to the lonely South Penny to my name Saw a boy easing by In another brain. How have you been so far? I woke up and I still know who you are. Did you expect me to cry? Will you not think of me tonight? Hiding in the corner of my world Didn't hear a sound Lying under my head Never to be found. Did you expect me to cry? Will you not think of me tonight? Did you expect me to fly? Will you not think of me tonight? Категория

As Carole Rosenthal exposes the semi-disastrous relations between women and men, one feels as if too bright a light came on over the bathroom mirror: uh-oh, I really do look like that. But exposure of disaster, if sharply poignant, is often comical as well. You can laugh at the sight in the well-lit glass. The sly title, It Doesn't Have To Be Me, also says it IS "me," the ego--everyone's ego--deluding itself the more it tries to rationalize. But delusions secretly recognized and indulged create an absurd triumph of intelligence in these stories. Utterly clear and deadpan in style, right-on in observation, they'll do more for your elusive psyche than an hour with your analyst. Give this book to friends--after all, it doesn't have to be them.

These stories offer insight into the ways people interact. Skillfully and vibrantly written, they will appeal to anyone who wonders what lovers, children and parents are really thinking. Rosenthal's insight into the human heart is stunning, and her quirky sense of humor is an added benefit. I would recommend this collection to anyone who enjoys fine writing, a great sense of humor, and is looking for insight into the ways we live and love.

Startling and surreal, outrageous and outspoken, Carole Rosenthal's collection of short stories is also hilarious--fun to read, yet serious. I haven't read any collection this rich in a long time.
