The Graybar Hotel: Stories by Curtis Dawkins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I went into reading The Graybar Hotel without much knowledge of the book. I read the pitch and thought it sounded interesting and requested the ARC without much else going in. I am not a huge fan of short story collections, but this is definitely the best I have read. The stories were interesting and the writing was great. The details about what life in prison is like had me captivated and interested. I found myself thinking about them weeks after finishing the story. One in particular, about a man who would spend his days randomly calling phone numbers until someone answered, really resonated with me.
After finishing the book and reading more about Curtis Dawkins, I love this book even more. I gave The Graybar Hotel four stars, but only because the pacing in some of the stories was a bit slow for my taste. I definitely would recommend this book.
