Location2nd Floor Humanities
RatingHighly Recommended
Book ReviewThe Theory of Light and Matter is a collection of ten, first person short fiction stories.  The subjects are relatable and I found myself becoming increasingly introspective on my own life experiences - from childhood to adulthood. The story that is also the book's namesake is my favorite, and not just because I work for a university. The best part about a book of short stories is that you feel like you've read multiple books in one sitting - and Andrew Porter's stories are no different. If you're haunted by nostalgia and wonder how the choices you make in life define who you are, this book is for you.
