    One thought on “And Venus Is Blue”

    1. Another great book of short stories by Mary Hood. And Venus Is Blue is a difficult to understand story of a suicide (the longest "short story" in the book as well as the title of the book). It's been a long time since I've read it, but I'm going to make a point to re-read it soon.Maybe this time I'll understand it better, now that I've added more years to my life.

    2. This is a lovely collection of short stories. But what makes the book really special is its title story, a novella. It begins with a quote that describes suicide as a bullet through a photo album - all memories you have are altered in some way.

    3. Mary Hood has a beautiful writing voice. She doesn't hid that she is a Southern writer, and yet her accent doesn't come across so thickly you need to look for the exit of the Piggly-Wiggly. She's a Southern writer, because that's where her neighbors live.These stories are enjoyable. My favorite was "Nobody's Fool" about a stubborn old man who, instead of admitting to his daughter the dog has escaped, heads out (almost with his walker in hand) to rescue the dog himself. I can hear him saying dagn [...]

    4. 3.5Fine stories. I failed to really understand the novella, though the individual parts of it were compelling.

    5. The title novella is brilliant--one of the best I've read--but I found the stories to be rather underwhelming. They might just be too subtle for me, though.
