If you could sum up How to Be a Man in three words, what would they be?
Western, poignant, lyrical
What other book might you compare How to Be a Man to and why?
I don't think I can compare this collection to other story collections because Tamara Linse has such a unique voice.
Which scene was your favorite?
The title story is my favorite and I think it's the strongest story in the collection. It's tricky to tell a story in second person, and this one doesn't at all feel gimmicky. Instead, you're inside Birdy Gunderson, feeling everything she feels. "Then it will be as if some one grabs the center of his face and twists. The look will be so awful your body will wander to a stop and you'll stand, unbelieving, still caught in the adrenaline of the moment before." I don't know if it's possible for those lines not to break your heart.
If you could rename How to Be a Man, what would you call it?
The name is perfect as it is! I'm looking forward to reading more from Linse, and I've already purchased her novel, Deep Down Things.
Any additional comments?
P.J. Morgan is a talented narrator and I look forward to hearing more of her work. I received this audiobook in exchange for a fair review.
