Pulp and Paper

Finished March 26
Pulp and Paper by Josh Rolnick
This collection of short stories offers diverse experiences from a varied group of characters.
This collection is a winner of the John Simmons Short Fiction Award. The eight stories here are split into two sections, with four stories set in New Jersey and four set in New York. The main characters in the stories range from children to adults, and include both women and men. From a bereaved father to a young boy struggling with his mom moving on from his father's death, from violent disruptions to slow decay, these stories show loss.
The strength of these stories is in the characters and their reactions to the events that take place around them. An engaging and promising collection.
