Thank you to The Washington Post and to Daphne Kalotay for featuring Wendy Wimmer’s debut collection of short stories, Entry Level, on their list of “10 award-winning short story collections worth reading.” Of Wimmer’s book, Kalotay says:
“If punchy first sentences are to your taste, Wendy Wimmer’s Entry Level (Autumn House Fiction Prize) is the book for you. . . . In the delightful “Texts from Beyond,” a company purportedly helps people send messages to deceased relatives. Equally affecting are stories more rooted in the real, where Wimmer gets closer to character and emotion, such as “Billet-Doux,” told via unsent letters addressed to celebrities, random people, inanimate objects, a recurring guy on the BART and the protagonist herself.”
