Another Van Booy book down the hatch! The Sadness of Beautiful Things is a collection of stories — some shorter than others. I enjoyed the length variability. All of them, as the title infers, are a little sad but also hopeful. This was a quick and delicious read — full of characters and ideas, lives and deaths, with poetic prose in between. I got this easily from the library and enjoyed it very much. I am going backwards through Van Booy’s bibliography 🙂

I love how Van Booy resonates for you. Guess I had better dive in.
Also, I really love his titles.
