I'm going to hold off voting on this one for a bit. I need to consider options, since my initial interest is really only in two of them. So I'll do a bit more digging - I suspect I'm undervaluing at least a couple more than that.

Sorry, running late today, but it appears we'll be reading Sunshine Sketches. Should be fun, and was on my list even though I didn't get a chance to vote. (Rough morning, don't ask!)

I'm in the middle of chapter 1 and so far I'm not sure what to make of it. I do hope it gets better.

I started reading it as well and have a sudden, pressing desire to re-read Sherwood Anderson's Winesburg, Ohio. I might give in to said desire for the purposes of discussion in August.

My immediate thought was Angela Thirkell, actually. But I take your point!

Shirley Jackson's short-story collection Dark Tales, which I nominated, is on sale today at Amazon for $1.99.
