This Will Be Difficult to Explain: And Other Stories
Pacing. I parceled out the nine stories in the collection from Johanna Skibsrud titled, This Will Be Difficult to Explain: And Other Stories. Over the course of a year, I read each story twice, spacing them out by reading only one in a given month. I found something to like in each story, but had to work harder than I’d like to appreciate her talent. I selected this book because it won the Giller prize. Once again, I found myself being unable to discover what led the judges to select this book. Readers should sample her prose before purchasing this book.
Rating: Three-star (It’s ok)
