Brad Watson's stories satisfy by their authenticity, their origins in the oral traditions of the American south, their foundations in the rich, fertile soil of its storytelling culture. His characters move freely from page to mind, loitering with the reader, lingering, as if they were old acquaintances who needed to be nowhere in particular. They sift through the detritus of their lives, recovering seemingly little at first, discovering only later the clarity that often tags along with realization and acceptance. It is Watson's language that animates these stories though. His sentences, often approaching poetic, delight, demanding to be read again and again. Words cavort ,mingle in a surprising synergism. Many of the stories are deceptively essayistic, adding to their authenticity. This is a fine collection by a gifted writer.
Exactly what the title says. Flannery O'Connor or John Hollander, with dogs.
A few good stories but they become rather repetitive.
