Together We Can Bury It

Together We Can Bury It - Kathy Fish A sweepingly excellent collection of 40 stories, a sort of retrospecticus of Kathy Fish's writing career so far. Everything about this book is well-done. Packaging, book design, even the ordering of the stories, perfectly executed. The stories themselves: amazing. There's no filler: every story is aching and gorgeous. I was folding down corners to keep track of the stories I particularly liked, but then most of the pages ended up folded. But for my edification and later recollection, my favorites were:


"The Hollow"


"Rodney and Chelsea"

"Maidenhead to Oxford"


"Moth Woman"

"Baby, Baby"

"Cancer Arm" - a story about cancer and families and Thanksgiving, and easily one of my top 10 favorite short stories of all time.
