Empty Rooms, Lonely Countries by Christian A. Dumais. Dumais has a secret identity, you see. He’s CFB message board poster Puff Chrissy by day, and the author of poignant, witty, funny short stories by night. I’m only halfway through this short story collection – so technically, I must admit, there is the possibility of a horrific tricksy twist that will put this book on next year’s trick list – but so far this book has been one of the best literary treats of my year.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts when you finish the book.
