AM/PM, Amelia Gray, featherproof books, 2009
AM/PM is a slim, innovative collection of micro-stories, many only one or two paragraphs long. The stories are intriguing - each vignette funny, poignant, or sometimes just quirky. I truly admired the author's skill - she can say an awful lot in very few words. That being said, the overall effect can feel disjointed (though I got used to it partway through), so this will not be a book for a reader who prefers a traditional story arc, wants characters to fall in love with, or who is uncomfortable with ambiguity. An interesting read, recommended for true indiephiles or short story afficionados.
