    One thought on “Salton Sea”

    1. This little gem surprised me. What you have here is a small, slender collection of 5 powerful stories about the impoverished and struggling West. Think of Raymond Carver, William Kittredge, and Richard Ford. When he's not teaching creative writing at Cameron University in Lawton, Oklahoma, the author, George McCormick, spends his time in Montana, and it shows. McCormick is right at home with the best of the Montana writers. I look forward to reading more of his stuff.

    2. rich in symbolism, imagery, desolation, and nostalgia. character development is poor and predictable; reeks of misogyny and unoriginality (see: cormac McCarthy)

    3. matter of fact short stories taking place mainly in western usa, socal, idaho, oklahoma, montana, running dope from washington st and califa back east. stories mostly about couples disintegrating or fixing to or destined to, or maybe even not.
