We Live in Water
Variety. I enjoyed each of the short stories in the debut collection from Jess Walter titled after one of them, We Live in Water. Walter draws characters efficiently and tells a story with humor or sadness that fits perfectly to the subject and content. These are interesting lives of people whose variety and differences helped me appreciate how much each of us has in common with one another, no matter what the specifics of our particular situations. Fans of the short story are most likely to enjoy this collection. A book club might find the variety in these stories would lead to interesting conversations.
