Author Neil Gaiman says that through reading, we “exercise our imaginations” and “build empathy.” Here are three new stories to daydream with. The Hollywood Daughter by Kate Alcott (Touch of Stardust) is a story based on Ingrid Bergman’s affair with Roberto Rossellini. It’s another “appealing story” told with “great skill and insight” by Ms Alcott. The Hearts of Men by Nickolas Butler (Shotgun Lovesongs)is another communique from the great Midwest. Set against the woodsy backdrop of a Boy Scout summer camp, Camp Chippewa, the narrative follows three generations struggling to find their place in a world bent on dealing them a bad hand. In Swimming Lessons by Claire Claire Fuller (Our Endless Numbered Days), a woman goes a solo swim and doesn’t come back; her daughter discovers a cache of letters which tell her story. All available at the Nichols Library (Nail Gaiman like s libraries, too).
