Just After Sunset - call it dusk, call it twilight, it's a time when human intercourse takes on an unnatural cast, when nothing is quite as it appears, when the imagination begins to reach for shadows as they dissipate to darkness and living daylight can be scared right out of you. It's the perfect time for Stephen King.

Mr. King did not disappoint. I enjoy his stories anyway but REALLY enjoyed the narrators in this book. I did not like listening to the story about a rest stop just before stopping in a rest stop for the night. Mission accomplished, Mr. King!

From the internationally best-selling, Pulitzer Prize-winning author, a superbly crafted new work of fiction: eight stories that take us from Cambridge and Seattle to India and Thailand. In the stunning title story, Ruma, a young mother in a new city, is visited by her father, who carefully tends the earth of her garden, where he and his grandson form a special bond. But he's harboring a secret from his daughter, a love affair he's keeping all to himself.

I had had enough of angst ridden Bengali's at the end of this.

In the year since it opened, A Good Yarn has thrived and so has Lydia Hoffman, the owner. A lot of that is due to Brad Goetz. But when Brad's ex-wife reappears, Lydia is suddenly afraid to trust her newfound happiness.

A good way to pass the day. Not a real exciting story but interesting nonetheless. I enjoyed it.
