Whiskey, Etc. by Sherrie Flick is a sharp–edged, intelligent, brilliantly written collection of short shorts by a writer at the very top of her game. One finds glimpses of Joy Williams here, but this is unmistakably Flick’s world, inhabited as it is with dogs & songs & whiskey & lovers. Of grace & undoing. The remembered & the remembering. This book took my every last breath away.
