Brief Interviews With Hideous Men (2001, Time Warner Books Uk) 4 stars

Review of 'Brief Interviews With Hideous Men' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

I really wish I could give this 4 and a half stars.

This was an extremely difficult collection of stories to work through. If you don't value the rewards of working through difficult prose, this book is not for you.

It's a powerful collection, filled with characters that I was often horrified to discover I related to. I was most struck by The Depressed Person, a powerful story that just won't leave my head. The last interview is also powerful, and it has made an indelible mark in my brain.
