Voices. The ten stories in the collection by Nicole Krauss titled, To Be a Man, seemed to speak to each other as well as to readers. Across multiple times and places, the stories explore identity in ways that are familiar and strange. The prose is finely written, and the insights into human nature are often profound. I felt the tension among relatable characters as they engage with each other. These are our voices in the stories, this is our life, this is our experience.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
