Acerbic. I’ve always been attracted to smart-mouthed women. There are eight stories in the latest collection from Lorrie Moore titled, Bark. I was delighted by the acerbic wit and psychological insight presented in these quirky stories. Moore observes our human condition with a mature eye to our foibles and how easy it can be to become caught up in our unusual behaviors. The short story structure demands discipline in narrative and character development, and Moore displays great skill in drawing us into lives quickly, helping us recognize the depth of characters, and enjoy the situations of others. Throughout, we learn about human behavior, thanks to this smart-mouthed and very talented author. Rating: Five-star (I love it) Click here to purchase Bark from amazon.com.
