Review by: Troy Hill on July 26, 2013 :
DWIGHT'S HOUSE AND OTHER STORIES is the kind of fiction you can't put down but don't want to finish. The clearly drawn (but broad range of) characters quickly become intimate, giving the reader a feeling of being "privileged and familiar." The title story takes place in a year of literal explosions, but each story features a literal or figurative explosion, or implosion, tying the collection together with a sense of epic collapse. The tales are diverse with characters varied by class, religion, sexuality, and age. Never maudlin, always grounded in the mundanity of contemporary life, but mined with mystery, DWIGHT'S HOUSE AND OTHER STORIES surprises, delights, and disturbs. I look forward to reading more work of Meredith Sue Willis.
