The Embassy of Cambodia: Short Story (2013)
language
English
3.67 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: This story is packaged like a tiny book. And at only 69 pages, it's a fast read. But it's an interesting read. Told from the viewpoint of a nameless, faceless narrator who lives in a quiet, well-to-do neighbourhood, it tells the story of Fatou, a woman working in a thankless job ...

review 1: The standouts in this book are the essay on E.M. Forster (whom I love, and therefore cannot separate my enjoyment of the essay from my enjoyment of him) and the film reviews, which were so great I wanted to stuff the book into my mouth and eat it.The rest is a mixed bag; I disagr...

review 1: Oblivious to Ms Smith's literary outings, I picked this up on a whim and found myself absolutely entranced by both the range and the readability. She dons many hats: of a literary criticism professor, a film reviewer, a diarist, a travelogue writer and a lecturing writer, and man...

review 1: Smith is good company through out though the essays themselves go up and down quite a bit. The talk on craft and the essay on EM Forster stood out to me.A couple faves that seemed relevant to grad school and (that I realize now rest in large part on quotes from other writers.)On ...
