In the Penny Arcade - Steven Millhauser

I picked this book up in a used bookstore because it said the author was a winner of the Pulitzer Prize.  He certainly is an excellent writer.  This is a collection of short stories telling small snippets of life in great detail.  The pictures painted in each tale are vivid and personal, bringing the characters experience into sharp focus.  He weaves in the supernatural occasionally, in the way our minds wander to imaginary happenings.  I may look for his novel, Martin Dressler.

Published: 1981   Read: October 2012   Genre: Short Story fiction
