REVIEW City of Boys Beth Nugent ✓ 1 FREE READ SUMMARY Ö TACUAREMBOFC.CO ✓ Beth Nugent Set in New York City middle America the beaches of Florida and rural highways suburban kitchens and cross country trains the ten stories of City of Boys evoke a haunting landscape at once familiar and strange A small town girl flee. It took me about eight months to finish this collection mostly because I read the first six or so stories in one sitting LOVED them and knew that I d never get the chance to read the rest for the first time again So I delayed And I m glad I did because it s been great to sit with this collection all this time Nugent is a powerhouse Her stories are often vicious and bleak and nihilistic but they also manage to be occasionally hopeful and grace seeking It s true that some of the narrators blend together but I think that s value neutral My favorites City of Boys Cocktail Hour At The End of My Life Riding Into Day But every story is strong here except for me the last story Going which felt thin and incomplete Who cares The rest is so so good
