  • 1 thought on “Love Letters from a Fat Man”

    1. Three stories in and I was falling in love with this book. Five stories in, and I have to pause to breathe, reflect and swoon. Wildly original and diverse, each story has been a bittersweet gem. I am trying to slow down my reading in order to savor the words.

    2. Truly excellent writing. The style reminds me of Nabokov in the way that it reads like pure poetry in places. Well done, Naomi!
