Pieces for the Left Hand: 100 Anecdotes: 11/12/11
My library maintains a shelf of recommended books in the front lobby. After coming through the security system, it's the first thing one sees. One of the temping titles I saw displayed there was Pieces for the Left Hand: 100 Anecdotes by J. Robert Lennon.
The book is 100 extremely short stories. Each one is no more than two pages long. They are very often a description of a scene or a thought about a topic. They are all loosely tied together.
This is a book that needs to be lingered over with a morning cup of coffee. While it can be read over a single cup of coffee, I recommend only a few stories a morning. Savor the book and ponder the stories.
