Bark

Title: Bark
Author: Lorrie Moore
Call Number: McNaughton
Location: 1st Floor McNaughton
Rating: Highly Recommended
Book Review: Lorrie Moore’s writing is like a fine Mourvèdre, a wine known for its meaty richness and wonderful longevity. In this collection of eight stories, she shows that her mastery over words continues: they tumble over the reader like wine over an oenophile’s tongue, igniting images and emotions. Though the book is short, the themes are deep and touch upon the struggles people face connecting (Debarking) and disconnecting (Paper Loses). As always, Moore’s dark humor--with its aftertaste of sweet, salty, sour, and bitter-- is to be savored like a classic vintage.
