I will not have internet at home to listen tonight, but I have some questions for Jennifer.

What makes you decide to write a set of short stories rather than one novel? Do you think there are different types of readers that gravitate to short stories vs. novels? I have read The Condition and also (obviously) this book. I think I gravitate more towards novels so that I can spend more time with the characters.

I grew up in western Pennsylvania and my grandmother lived for a short time in a mining town. I thought you were spot on in the descriptions of the town! I also remember as a kid, my grandmother getting the Pennsylvania blocks of cheese! You had to grow up in my neck of the woods - - OMG, I just googled you and I also grew up in Cambria County!! I was born and raised in Johnstown and my grandmother was in a mining town outside of Somerset. What a small world.

What are you working on next?

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
