Tunneling to the center of the earth: stories

Tunneling to the center of the earth: stories

By Kevin Wilson

 I loved this book! First of all I love short stories. I love their economy and the way they (usually) leave you wanting more. This particular book of short stories is a real gem.  They sparkle with quirky, but surprisingly relatable characters.  They deal with loss and trying to hold on…to something.  In my favorite story the lead character slaves away daily in a Scrabble factory looking for  “Q” tiles.  And if that isn’t enough his parents died of spontaneous combustion.  These stories might be short but they are long on meaning and feeling. If you read this book be sure to read the authors notes. They are very funny.
