Sing To It

Voice. Amy Hempel presents readers with an eclectic range of fifteen short stories in a collection titled, Sing To It. Some of the stories are very short and still complete. With great economy, she can capture emotion using just the right words. Her voice can come across as odd and a bit quirky, which may distract some readers. You can find laughter and pain in sentences that follow each other and feel that juxtaposition is perfect. The longest story, Cloudland, surrenders economy for taking us to many places and to different emotions with depth and insight. Fans of finely written literary fiction are those readers most likely to enjoy the stories in this collection. Rating: Three-star (It’s ok) Click here to purchase Sing To It from
