you should pity us insteadYou Should Pity Us Instead: Stories by Amy Gustine

Add this to the list of stellar story collections released in 2016! Gustine’s stories are dazzling, a wide array of fascinating tales of morality, and they’re beautifully executed. There’s a mother searching for her kidnapped son in Gaza, an Ellis Island conductor mourning for his old love, a father grieving after the suicide of his daughter, and more. The beating heart of this collection is the delicate nature of relationships and Gustine’s wit and her compassion and love for each of her characters shines off every page.
