Living in the Weather of the World, Richard Bausch is such an amazing collection of stories that it takes your breath away. If I had written either “Veterans Night” or “The Knoll,” I could just hang it up.  I could just start whistling “We are the champions,” I could start dancing in the streets.  When you are reading Bausch, you are in the hands of a master.  His writing is so good, you feel like you are in a hammock rocking back and forth.


My favorite Bausch book has always been Peace,


but now this book? The short story collection blew me away.  Bausch is a master of his craft.  These are the stories of the compressed life.  Read it and flex your writing hands. Have courage, young Skywalker.
