How to Breathe Underwater

A friend of mine recently lent me her copy of Julie Orringer's book "How to Breathe Underwater."  It is a collection of short stories and the protagonists are all young women.  Each story is layered with subtle detail and intimacy.  I had a hard time deciding which story was my favorite.  


  1. Ah, this seems fascinating. Have you finished it already? I'm up late reading Persuasion.

  2. yes, i have finished it, i loved it! i have never read persuasion, but should!
