Reviews - What do customers think about Epiphanies & Elegies: Very Short Stories?

Sunlight from Oregon  May 2, 2008
Brian Doyle is simply one of the two best essayists writing today. This book proves it--- once again.
Poems of unparalleled power and grace  Nov 1, 2007
I discovered this author when I picked up a copy of his book of essays - "Credo" in a used book store a few years ago. I was stunned at the power of his prose, read the book cover to cover twice, and gave copies to family and friends. I bought this book thinking it was more essays. At first I was disappointed to have been 'tricked' into buying poetry (what an embarrassing admission) - but what a brilliant and pleasant trick. Some of this writing left me close to dumbfounded. Certainly speechless. Amazing, amazing stuff. I anxiously await more.
Short book - short review!  Mar 17, 2007
Wonderful! But then I love anything Brian Doyle writes. He makes you laugh, he makes you cry. He makes you just feel good.
