Two Unique Voices, Two Mixed Results (Book Reviews)

Published February 2006
Published April 2002
 Open: Stories - Lisa Moore B-
I found some of these stories original and enthralling, while others were contrived and forgettable. I'm sort of undecided about this one, but I think Moore's voice is interesting enough to consider her other books.

Sinners Welcome: Poems - Mary Karr B-
The poems in this collection are hit and miss, but I thoroughly enjoyed the essay on poetry and faith. Sinners Welcome is a nice companion piece to Karr's extraordinary 2009 memoir, Lit.
