Here's Your Hat What's Your Hurry
Here's Your Hat What's Your Hurry | Elizabeth McCracken
2 posts | 3 read | 2 to read
The singular, enchanting debut story collection from Elizabeth McCracken, now back in print as part of Eccos Art of the Story series, and with a new introduction from the author Called astonishingly assured by The Guardian, the nine stories that make up Elizabeth McCrackens debut story collection deal with oddball characters doing their very best to forge connections with those around them. In Its Bad Luck to Die a woman marries an older tattoo artist and finds comfort in agreeing to act as a canvas for his most elaborate work. Some Have Entertained Angels, Unaware follows a young girl as she comes face to face with a cast of eccentrics her recently-widowed father has invited to live in their expansive but dilapidated home. And in the title story, a young man and his wife are perplexed when an outspoken old woman shows up on their doorstep for a visit, claiming to be a distant aunt, even though she cant be traced on a family tree. At once captivating and offbeat, Heres Your Hat Whats Your Hurry is a dazzling showcase of the early years of Elizabeth McCrackens prodigious talent.

I bought this for my Kindle the other day when it was on sale and started commute reading it yesterday. It's so good that I keep hoping for delays. And it's inspired me to pick up some of the McCracken I haven't read yet from the library.
