  3. Eileen Pollack s newest collection of stories is very good She s an excellent story teller and a fine writer to boot In the Mouth includes The Bris which was included in the Best American Short Stories 2007 collection edited by Stephen King It s a fantastic story My other favorite here is Milk This book is recommended if you are interested in dentists, fathers, penises, retirees, hospitals, Florida, Jews, Yiddish, babies, tortoiseshell glasses, motherhood, or just really good, well crafted prose [...]

  5. Each story in this collection made me ache with regret or longing Eileen Pollack shows us passion among lovers, spouses, friends, and strangers but she captures with particular tenderness and brutal honesty the nuances of love between parents and their adult children The book s novellas long stories The Bris and Beached in Boca are both powerful, but the crown jewel of this collection the one that sent me on a lone walk in the dark is Uno.

This collection of short stories is well written, the characters are human, and the author is shockingly honest I m not much of a short story collection reader any they take me forever to get through them since I don t feel committed to one story however, I enjoyed this Pollack is a brave and honest writer and she is so ridiculously smart that I can t help but enjoy reading her stories.
