Lorrie Moore

Lorrie Moore is a great contemporary writer. Her stories are witty, poignant and delivered with very little fuss. Like everything I’ve read of hers, Childcare is a pleasure to read.

If you want to read more, I recommend her short story collections Birds of America and Like Life. I also enjoyed her short novel, Who Will Run the Frog Hospital? Her latest novel is called A Gate at the Stairs.
