Dancing by the River: Stories
This is a superb collection of stories about the fascinating complexities of life in a small community. Marlin Barton is a masterful observer of family relations and the idosyncratic logic that governs human lives. His writing does not call attention to itself---it is simple, powerful, and so fluid that it seems almost effortless.
