Review: Look How Happy I’m Making You by Polly Rosenwaike

look_how_happy

Much more intelligent critics than I have written on Polly Rosenwaike’s debut short story collection. Yet I still felt the need to write up something on this exceptional fiction for Seattle Book Review.

Rosenwaike’s prose is sophisticated but never overly literary. Her tone and observations allow these characters to feel intensely real and inviolate. She deftly navigates emotionally difficult terrain while getting at the heart of both her characters’ and readers’ hopes and anxieties. Look How Happy I’m Making You is a satisfying short story collection which will likely leave readers uneasy and appeased.
