Months and Seasons is a collection of short stories. In it we meet a variety of people in different stages of life, dealing with different conflicts and life-altering events. They all search for happiness for themselves and their loved ones.
Some of my favorite stories include "Dracula Slinks Into The Night," about a man attending a Halloween party (I really identified with this guy!), "The Farms at 93rd and Broadway," about a husband and wife attending a hypnotist show, "The Sun Is a Billiard Ball," two stories that eventually weave into one, "The Old Topanga Incident," where a whole man's life burns to the ground, "Months and Seasons," about one man's perception of what he wants, and "Breaking Water," about a woman reinventing her life.
I really liked the variety in the stories. Some were humorous whereas others were more serious. With some short story collections, it ultimately feels like the same story repeated over and over again, slightly different each time. This is definitely not the case here. This collection provides peeks into many different lives in way different ways, all by the same author.
