  1. Erin Cole says:

    Gay Degani has a stunning voice, gripping and charged, and loaded with such authentic realism, that her literary stories borderline nonfiction horrors. Beneath the anguish of hardship, Degani’s stories offer subtle hope, charm, and humor that captures the reader and pulls them into another's life that is rich with details and character. Even if the reader has never experienced such conflict, the confidence in Degani’s writing and the style with which she portrays her characters’ emotions will have you riding shotgun.

    In “Dani-Girl’s Guide to Getting Everything Right,” we steal into the life of a young woman, who has made cardinal rules for getting through the tough spots in life, but when it comes to family matters, sometimes our guide is an opened map. “Hawaiian Hairdo,” “Listing Lisa,” and “Chair Girl” are absolute gems of women’s multifaceted relationships that will have you cheering in the end.

    In “Pomegranate,” “Monsoon,” “Spring Melt,” and “Rim Shot,” Degani uncovers the darker nightmares that plague mothers, daughters, and their families, and how the human spirit, despite its frailty, carries on in a world that is too often blackened with tears.

    Whether you read literary, mystery, or horror, the crisp details of Gay Degani’s Pomegranate Stories will both delight and startle you.

    A collection of eight very strong literary stories that are well grounded in reality and emotionally charged. Each story was a cut above the usual, and my favorites were Monsoon, Dani-Girl's Guide to Getting Everything Right, and Pomegranate. I was also quite fond of Chair Girl though it is a slighter story, more like what I often write. What I particularly admire in Ms. Degani's work is her consistent ability to characterize intensely in so few words, and her ability to keep plot moving and language fresh at the same time. This is a rare skill. I highly recommend this collection for folks who like short, intense fiction, and for writers interested in crafting the same. My only niggle is that I wanted more stories, and perhaps a wider variety of themes.

    The stories in ‘Pomegranate’ convince you Gay Degani’s been in your shoes, thought your thoughts, felt your emotions. You realize that you are stronger than you thought you were, the ironies of life won’t stop the rain from falling, and that we need to smile when the opportunities present themselves. Beautiful prose, beautiful stories, do yourself a favor and buy this book.

    There is something remarkable about a great set of stories. Gay Degani succeeds in having a collection of uniformly great stories. The simplicity of the writing works well, and for me simple, effective writing is a pleasure to read. The predominantly female characters are well written, and I was clamoring for more after reading all of the stories in one sitting. I have one problem with this collection, though, and it's the same problem I've had with Alice Munro: everything is sad. Don't expect to feel well or satisfied after reading these stories. Recommended for those who love great, sad writing.
