Book Spotlight Giveaway! You Won’t Remember This: Stories by Kate Blackwell

I have sooooo many books! I have a ton of print books and probably even more e-books. The Book Spotlight feature that I post every Saturday is a way for me to clear my shelves and to share some of the books I have. There are a lot of different reasons that I might be letting some of my books go, the biggest one is that when we moved I discovered just how many books I really do have. This feature is a way for my to cull my collection and to give someone else the opportunity to enjoy them.

I read and reviewed this wonderful book of stories back in June. I loved it and enjoyed this author's compilation of southern fiction. You can read my thoughts here. I also have a copy of this on my Kindle so as a way to clear my physical shelves a bit, I am giving away my print copy.

Good luck and be sure to stop back next week!

You Won't Remember This

You Won’t Remember This: Stories by Kate Blackwell
Print and e-book, 248 pages
Published May 15th 2015 by Bacon Press Books 

The twelve stories in Kate Blackwell's debut collection illuminate the lives of men and women who appear as unremarkable as your next-door-neighbor until their lives explode quietly on the page. Her wry, often darkly funny voice describes the repressed underside of a range of middle-class characters living in the South.

"These are necessary stories, which often possess a quality of devastating clarity all too infrequent in short fiction. Each is a rare entrée into the ordinary everyday world without the added special effects of all-consuming tragedy. This collection is prime proof that there is nothing, nothing like a collection of short stories to offer an almost Cubist perspective on the way women live." --Cynthia Shearer

"You most definitely WILL remember this extraordinary collection. All of Blackwell's finely crafted stories move as easily as an overheard conversation about what is too often hushed in the human heart." --Robert Bausch

  6. Summer has been fun, but I'm ready for some cooler weather. I would love to read this book. Thanks for having the giveaway.

  7. I didn't want summer break to end because I love having them home. This past week they went back to school and getting back into a busy routine was stressful, but my kids had a great week and they love their new teachers and seeing their friends again. Now if only it would cool down so I can read outside :)

  8. The summer flew by, yet again. It was a cold, wet, miserable summer, with little appropriate outdoor weather. I always dread sending my children back to school. I like having them home with me and miss them when they're away.
