My Favorite Contemporary Short Story Collection Mar 29, 2008
The best short story collections I've read in several years. Silber subtly connects each story--you have to think a bit, in some cases, to see the connection. I'm not a conventionally 'religious' person, but this book left me feeling spiritually moved by the various concepts of faith the characters experience, from missionary zeal to belief in oneself to hope in the form of the most unexpected fellow human. Highly recommended.
