A Vacation on the Island of Ex-Boyfriends

Title: A Vacation on the Island of Ex-Boyfriends
Author: Stacy Bierlein
Publisher: Elephant Rock
ISBN: 978-0-615-52977-6
Why Read?: Early Review
Challenges: Chick Lit, Short Story

Thoughts: This was a very interesting collection of short stories. Every story dealt with relationships, but some in a healthier way than others. My two favorites would probably be the first and last ones, “A Vacation on the Island of Ex-Boyfriends” and “An Interrogation at the Prison of Ex-Girlfriends”—fitting bookends as the titles imply—which had a sort of fantasy feel to them. I also liked “The Challenge of Acting Normal” which was perhaps the happiest of these rather somber tales.

Rating: 3 stars
