Passion. There are eleven short stories in the collection by Carolyn Cooke titled for one of them, Amor and Psycho. I spread my reading of this collection out, selecting one story about every two weeks. I enjoyed Cooke’s wit and the way she can twist a phrase to pack as much passion as possible into a few of just the right words. Life and death are side by side in these stories, and passion and physical decline coexist. Readers who like literary fiction and the short story genre are those most likely to enjoy this collection.
Rating: Three-star (It’s ok)
