Why Visit America: Stories
I am so happy to say that we have arrived at a golden age of literature. There are many genius writers delivering the goods in fiction. Among them, and perhaps paramount to them is Mathew Baker. This is his second collection of stories. He has also written a novel that I must seek out. If one marries Aldous Huxley with Kurt Vonnegut, Tom Robbins, and Stephen King, the result would be Baker; because he is so creative. Like King, his stories sparkle with stunning originality and a myriad of new ideas. This collection ranges from empty dead babies, secession, bullying revenge, resistance to euthanasia, self digitizing, memory washes, unnecessary men, craven materialism, branding, maternal rights, immigration, reverse living, and the power of love. At the conclusion of every story, this reader had to take a breath and a break and consider the many ramifications of his forays into uncharted territories.||If you long for suspense and humor within the stories you read, you will find them in abundance in this volume. Yes, I have used too many superlatives, but I loved the writing in these stories.
