I’m Jim McKeown, welcome to Likely Stories, a weekly review of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry.
I once attended an American Library Association Convention, and I found myself in line for an inscribed copy of Lust by Susan Minot. Unlike many authors that day, she had a comfortable demeanor as though we were longtime friends. She signed my book, “Thanks for being the first in line that day.” I recently got a copy of her latest book, a collection of short stories, Why I Don’t Write. Her prose is fluid, captivating, and downright funny.
