Read full description of the books Babe in Paradise: Fiction:Oh, I just love this author. I loved The God of War so much that I started buying up all of Marisa Silver's books. I didn't know this was a collection of short stories and was really confused when the second "chapter" switched gears so drastically. When I realized what was going on I felt a little let down, but it turns out this book does not disappoint. I feel so close to her characters. She lives Los Angeles and writes about Eagle Rock, Glendale, and other places in SC so that I feel like I know her and can visualize her stories so vividly. Love love love. Ms. Silver please write more!!!
