D. M. Thomas on Bruce Jay Friedman's Three Balconies
A Google Alert came through this morn, linking to D. M. Thomas's blog. D. M. Thomas wrote, most famously, The White Hotel. Writing about what he is reading right now, Don writes: But I can now read other writers' fiction, as I don't allow myself to do while I'm writing, and I have a very good book to indulge myself in: Three Balconies, by the American writer Bruce Jay Friedman, a collection of short stories and a novella. The short stories are real, funny, wry, observant and written with grace. It will sustain me in this sad interim.
