So Late in the Day

By Claire Keegan

9/10
(9/10)

118 pages

What’s it about?

This slim book holds three short stories.  All the stories center on the tenuous relationships between men and women.

What did it make me think about?

How the dynamic between men and women can shift so unexpectedly.

Should I read it?

I have loved all three of the slim books I have read by Claire Keegan.  I read Small Things Like These first and it may be my favorite of the three books- but they are all treasures.  This third book of short stories was unexpected in many ways.  If you have not discovered Claire Keegan’s writing you should pick up any one of these books.  She says so much in just a little over 100 pages.  She is a singular talent. Quote- “That was the problem with women falling out of love; the veil of romance fell away from their eyes, and they looked in and could read you.”
