The Book We're Talking About

The Book We're Talking About is a weekly review combining plot description and analysis with fun tidbits about the book.

What we think
The epigraph for Bark, Lorrie Moore's first collection in 15 years, is comprised of three quotes, two about dogs and one about a tree. Disparate topics are cleverly brought together, hinged by a flimsy connector: bark. That's what Moore does, and, at her best, does well: draw straight, clear lines between big themes. 

And at Vulture:
“We’ll see if Nashville changes my writing. A change is always good for a writer.”
