Scott’s stories.

December 6, 2010 \pm\31 12:30 pm

So there’s this guy, his name’s Scott. Scott McClanahan. He’s from West Virginia. He wrote this book of stories called Stories, and this other book of stories called Stories II. Scott’s stories, they are fucking good stories. Like one of them is about a kid and these little birds and it’s so tender and another’s about this couple that’s really sort of funny when you think about it and there’s this one with a phone number in it, and the thing is that they are all something. Sometimes saying a thing is ‘real’ feels disingenuous, right? Like everything is real really, but I guess if you think of stories as just stories then you might think of Scott’s stories as real or something. Anyway, I just wanted to tell you about this guy Scott because I really liked his stories.
