Review by: Bethany Ebert on Feb. 09, 2016 :
A short story with prose that is both descriptive and restrained, "Herr Melby Makes Coffee" tells of two aging men who face the realities of their affair. Although I enjoyed the way it was written, the ending was too inconclusive for me, and I found myself wondering what exactly had just happened.

Review by: Marcia Carrington on Sep. 05, 2013 :
This short story radiates power in its distinctive and understated way, and is rich in symbolism, with great attention to physical detail.

The relationship between the two protagonists is handled in such an artistic and understated manner that the emotional impact of their estrangement is subtle, but highly palpable.

Review by: E Readers on March 25, 2013 :
The writer has examined every detail, movement, look and feeling with microscopic vigilance in this unusual short story. Two male lovers, two agendas crossing paths on different levels. There is a sense of ending, of mourning a relationship but no tangible or verbal conclusion that explains the situation completely. The setting, as with all the stories from this author, is beuatifully presented.

In less than 1,700 words, Gavin William Wright has crafted a touching and amazing short story which introduces two complex and conflicted characters. Despite the short length the character development is amazing and feels complete and the plot is engaging. A great quick read!
