Often anthologized and quoted writer Charles Baxter has a new collection of stories, There’s Something I Want You to Do.
The stories are broken down into two sections, Virtues and Vices, each containing five stories. Characters come and go through the ten stories, set mostly in Minneapolis. That Baxter understands the failings and strengths of humans is evident, and we see once again why he is considered such an authority on the short story form.
A great choice for book clubs as members can explore Baxter’s interpretation of each of the virtues and vices.
