Reviews - What do customers think about The Ocean Was Salt?

Not Chick Lit  Jun 15, 2006
This masterful collection of short stories by Loretta Cobb is an antidote to the disappointment you might feel when opening yet another book by a woman only to discover that it is superficial and cliche ridden fiction. This is not a book that would ever be mistaken for the mushrooming genre called "chick lit." It reminds me more of fiction by Lee Smith, Sena Jeter Naslund and Josephine Humphries. I loved every story in the book, and I'm eagerly looking forward to her next one.
Small gems of contemporary literature  Jul 16, 2004
Loretta Cobb is Founder and Director Emeritus of The Harbert Writing Center at the University of Montevallo. The Ocean Was Salt is a compilation of the best of her short stories and clearly documents her literary talent and abilities. The subject matter and tone of her stories are original and diverse. Also available in a hardcover edition (1931982252, $25.00), this impressive anthology features Before We Crawled to Tears; And the Word Was God; That Fall; The Darling Buds of May; Feeling Salty; Seeing It Through; Things Visible and Invisible; Belle's Balls; Out; and Moving. Small gems of contemporary literature, these are the kinds of stories that instantly engage their readers attention from beginning to end.
these short stories have it all!  Apr 5, 2004
the scope of subject matter is amazing in this thoroughly enjoyable collection of short stories. the selection is quite varied: you will find yourself reading about everything from racism during the civil rights era in the deep south to the problems of dealing with aging parents. while many of the stories are downright hilarious, others are poignant and heart-rendering, rich with emotion and conflict and believable characters. ms. cobb's style is uniquely her own, and i predict readers will be clamoring for more!
