Flick’s new collection brims with wit and wisdom, love and disaster, and the best kinds of surprises.
These fifty stories have an astonishing scope, as vast as our American States. Sherrie Flick seems to know something about all of us, and she’s telling our secrets.
Sherrie Flick is, like every great writer, a sublime noticer. The rich bounty of stories in Thank Your Lucky Stars is a testament to the raw power of her attention, her imagination, and her compassion. Her range is astonishing. She veers from realism to fabulism to naturalism, from crickets to cowboys to fake farmers, with special commendations for those ready and willing to risk their heart for a bit more out of life.
