You Never Know Where You’ll Find Your Latest Favorite Book

While looking through a cart of books that were possibly in need of repair I came across a page with a sentence or two of pencil underlining in Richard Ford’s Women with Men: Three Stories.  I was so intrigued with the words that had been underlined that I decided I had to at least take a look at the rest of the book.  I had recently enjoyed Ford’s latest novel, Canada, so I thought I’d give this one a try. “I’ll read the first story,” I said to myself.  And then the second one was set in northern Montana about going to catch the train in Shelby (which I did several times when I lived in Great Falls) so I couldn’t put that one down once I’d started it.  Then I figured I might as well read the third story which I also enjoyed.  I would describe these stories as ‘women’s fiction from a man’s viewpoint’–the stories have to do with relationships and families and have more internal dialogue than action.  Stuff happens, but it’s not as important to the narrative as is the man’s perspective on that stuff.  Good stuff!
