Book Review: Girl's Guide to Hunting and Fishing

Author: Melissa Bank
Title: The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing
Description: A collection of short stories centering around Jane Rosenal (except for one about her aunt’s neighbor).
Source: yup, Penguin.
Writing style: A little disorienting—some first person, (including when the neighbor narrates), some second person.
Audience: Definitely literary fiction; more women than men, I’d guess.
Major ideas: The stories are about love. Or at least dating relationships. Jane’s brother, Jane, Jane’s aunt’s neighbor’s son’s.
Wrap-up: It was an easy one-vacation-day read, but I’m not sure that it’ll stick with me for long. A lot of New York publishing scene type stuff. 4/5*
