The stories in Maggie Shipstead’s You Have a Friend in 10A were published in literary journals between 2009 and 2017.
This book is a good example of how packaging and promotion can hit or miss with an audience.
“‘The ballet is the result of endless repetitions: uncounted rehearsals of acts, of scenes, of combinations, of steps,’ Shipstead writes. So, she seems to be saying, is life.”
“Little is conjured, nothing much is shown.”
