Further Interpretations of Real-Life Events: Stories - Kevin Moffett

It’s been a while since I came across a collection of short stories quite so inspiring. After the opening story of a young, struggling writer, Moffett branches out, exploring an astonishing array of characters. From a (possibly) senile old woman, to a young Estonian immigrant, to a dead-beat, middle-aged divorcee. By this description, one would think that he’s spreading himself too thin, exploring facets of life he can’t possibly know. But that’s where the brilliance lies. You will find yourself immersed and wrapped up in the well-being, in the small victories and disappointments, of these characters. I wanted to crawl inside these stories and curl up. Let them wash over and envelope me. “First Marriage” particularly stuck with me, and I was unable to get it out of my head for days afterward. I promise, you won’t be disappointed by Moffett’s genuine talent and quirkiness.
