    Flesh and Blood review Á 103 Flesh and Blood45 Crummey is fast becoming one of my favorite authors and although this doesn't uite hit the heights of his 'Sweetland' it is still a terrific collection of his short stories a format I don't usually much enjoy These stories have a few interconnections kind of like Strout's new 'Anything is Possible' which it reminded me of and all but one take place in the tiny mining town of Black Rock Newfoundland the one exception concerns an ex pat from there living in China Crummey started his literary output as a poet and that certainly shows in the lyrical uality of his prose which is often astonishing beautiful There are a few clunkers hence the 45 rating instead of a full fiveBe aware that there are TWO different editions the one with the illustration of the house contains three additional stories that are amongst t
