Publisher's Summary

Critically acclaimed author Keith Lee Morris—who has drawn favorable comparisons to Richard Russo and Richard Ford—delivers a stunning collection of stories. Through these tales of deep humanity, the flaws and strengths of young men are explored with remarkable clarity. In “The Visitation,” a man defends his home—the day after hosting a party— against a petty thief who was on the guest list. “Testimony” tracks former addict Robert Scott, the key witness in his friend’s murder trial, as Robert relives the crime and comes to terms with his own actions. And in “A Desert Island Romance,” Roger and Sharon wash up on the same beach at separate times. They strike up a relationship that eventually deteriorates when they both start pretending they are living their old lives. An unforgettable work read by a full cast of talented narrators, Call It What You Want features 13 stories that run the gamut from brutally honest to remarkably surreal.

    Story
    "Collection of well-narated shorts"
    What did you like best about Call It What You Want? What did you like least?

    The short stories in the collection are exceptionally well-matched to the gifted narrators. Each story is quite good on its own. As a collection, the whole is very powerful.

    That said, there didn't seem to be a "theme" or oganizing principal for the stories nor was it immediately apparent that they were even by the same author.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    As I noted above, this is a collection of short stories rather than "a" story. I might have enjoyed more if there were a more obvious theme.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrators sound perfectly matched to the stories they tell -which are typically narrated in a first-person. The sense they convey is that they are separate people - each sharing their own truth.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Because this is a collection of unrelated short stories, not sure how it could be converted to a movie.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish there were more available from same author, I would definitely use another "credit."
