Both Ways is the Only Way I Want It by Maile Meloy

Sometimes it’s a good thing to pick a book by an author’s whose previous books one hated. In this case, I had unkind (but heartfelt) comments about Liars and Saints and A Family Daughter, but I liked Both Ways Is the Only Way I Want It, which is a collection of stories. The stories are rather gloomy, with protagonists that don’t quite know how to live their lives, and of course stories tend to end abruptly, but if you can get over the pessimism it’s not a bad read.
