How They Met and Other Stories (Borzoi Books)

How They Met and Other Stories (Borzoi Books) - David Levithan I'm on a Levithan kick at the moment - can you tell?Like John Irving, Levithan includes a few common ingredients into most of his works. But instead of Austria and bears and incest, it's Jewishness, queerness, music, lust, and love. Levithan is a 'true' YA writer, even in short stories managing to show us those moments of transition when a young character's world expands, when change is imminent. He captures adolescent moments of missed connections and almost-missed connections so vividly that you can feel the characters' butterflies and breath-catching. He weaves tales of connections made that are intense and all-encompassing in the moment, and no less important for their evanescence. Levithan speaks to anyone who has ever felt like every song on the radio is about them, and like a single night is the entire world.
