Review of Life and Other Shortcomings

Short stories are something I generally don’t read but this book intrigued me. The author weaves together interlocking stories that definitely were compelling. I particularly liked that she wrote about characters from another culture with different traditions. The book highlighted the struggles women have in society and with themselves to be seen and heard. There were also a couple of stories from the male perspective that helped round out the book. The writing was lovely and really captured what the characters felt. I would love to read more about some of the characters and how their lives are going forward.
