      The blurb mentions in the vein of Marilynne Robinson This is not like Marilynne Robinson It s not even in the same universe as Marilynne Robinson.DNFThe stories are all surface and no depth In cases where I ve encountered this before, like Vampires in the Lemon Grove, there was beautiful prose to keep me entertained Rutting Season is missing the beautiful and poetic writing I immediately forgot what the first story was about before starting the second story Characters are stereotypes mor The blu [...]
