Something Like Happy

Something Like Happy - John Burnside Doesn't feel anorexic with its prose like a lot of modern short story collections - a lot of thought seems to have gone into writing these stories and they feel real/hefty and with a purpose.

Can be tiring reading the whole collection in a single seating (I took breaks several times over 3 days) but a worthy collection and deserves to be read and re-read.
