Opinion

From Library Staff

“One thing about her," I said, "that often gets lost in all the scripts is that she can love unconditionally. She can love people that don't love her back."
"That's a superpower?" Andy said.
"No mortal can do it," I said.”

"Bobcat and other stories" by Rebecca Lee is a collection of stories that I found to be somewhat disappointing. The title story "Bobcat" takes place during a dinner party. A story about an encounter with a bobcat unfolds during dinner. By the end of the evening, the bobcat's reality is doubted just as much as the happy marriages of the guests is doubted. An epilogue to the story set several months later recounts the break up of some of those couples. Nothing really original here.

"This richly detailed collection of stories ranges all over the world, from Manhattan to Nepal just in the title story alone. Each told from a first-person perspective, the stories ruminate on love and infidelity, apathy and pride; though they're set mainly in colleges and universities, their appeal won't be limited only to those who inhabit such worlds. Providing humour even in the darkest situations, this collection contains "gorgeously crafted, scintillating stories [that] are imaginative and incisive, funny and profound" (Booklist)."
