    1. What a wonderful write Jerome Stern who died in 1996 was I wish I d had the opportunity to hear some of his PBS radio segments of him reading his short works The last story in this book, Booklove has been a favorite in my family for years, copied and keepsaked and re read often Read this book It s only 142 pages long, with chapters only a few pages long, so you have no excuse not to read this little sparkling jewel of a book Get to it

    2. This book had a few stories within that intrigued me it was interesting how he mixed the stories of his experience with cancer right alongside happy memories from childhood I was impressed by Stern s ability to craft full stories out of limited words, though I do not know that short non fiction or fiction is really my favorite thing The stories felt like Stern s own thoughts diary entries just written down on paper without much editing or care.

    3. This is a book that we had on the bookshelf from the Conversation Club program on journalism It s short short stories that are wonderful.
