Thrift Store Coats
Thrift Store Coats by Brooks Rexroat is a brilliant collection of short stories. The short stories in this collection are bound together by their common exploration of the lives of people living in the Midwest navigating death, family relationships, poverty, and tragedy while at the same time trying to find themselves and their place in the world. Rexroat’s stories reel in readers with their relatability, devastating honesty, and the beautiful way in which its broken characters piece themselves together again after being pummeled by tragic circumstance. It is truly notable when a writer is able to write something so genuine to human experience that story melds into a reality that doesn’t leave the reader when they put down the collection of stories. To Brooks Rexroat I would say bravo. This collection is unforgettable, the writing is impeccable, and emotions it invokes in readers is unparalleled in its authenticity and rawness. I will highly recommend this collection of short stories to everyone I know.
