Charlotte Gill is the new writer-in-residence for our town. Her most recent book is about tree-planting, but it had 147-ish holds in our system so I got her older book of short stories, Ladykiller, to familiarize myself with her work. I liked it a lot. The stories tended to be about affairs between people who didn’t really like themselves a whole lot. Which is to say they weren’t upbeat adventure stories. But they captured these characters well.
