Kibbles and Picks 2017 - Week 8

Much better.

After a stretch of mediocrity, Stella and I both stepped up our games significantly for Week 7. Unfortunately for me, my strong 10-5 showing wasn’t strong enough; Stella went 11-4 and extended her season lead by another game.

A clash of titans – World Series 2017

After 162 games in the regular season – and over 100 wins each – and some hard-fought playoff series, we have our National League and American League pennant winners. The Los Angeles Dodgers and the Houston Astros are poised to face off in the 2017 World Series.

Shall we talk about it?

(Please note: By the time you read this, at least one game of the World Series will have already been played.)

ELLSWORTH – Few works of dramatic literature capture the specialness inherent to the small-town experience quite like Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town.” While the world has certainly grown larger in some ways (and smaller than others), there’s no denying the lasting impact of the piece.

It takes a special kind of creative self-awareness to allow a story to be exactly as long as it needs to be. The temptation to either heavily inflate or drastically cut a word count in order to fit within certain generally accepted literary parameters is significant, so it’s impressive when a writer is capable of staying utterly true to the tale.

Joe Hill has embraced that notion with his latest book “Strange Weather” (William Morrow, $27.99), a collection of four short novels. Rather than force these narratives to be more than what they are, Hill simply tells the stories as they wish to be told. They’re lean and sharp, with nary an ounce of prosaic fat on any of their bones.

And oh yeah – they’re all excellent.
