With Staff Picks, we would like to offer recommendations from our staff to you. These picks will be from a variety of reading, listening or viewing tastes. You might find stuff you've checked out before, or you might be intrigued enough to find a new favorite.

The Lovers Set Down Their Spoons by Heather A. Slomsky

Slomski’s first short story collection is filled with the slow-simmering, barely perceptible truths that lie at the dinner table. The stories range from the precipice of adultery to the peak of a life started anew. Each varied story represents the reality of human relationships and provides surprising twists on what initially appear to be classic tropes.

Readers who enjoy realistic fiction will devour this delectable collection of sweet, sour, bitter and savory tales.

If The Lovers Set Down Their Spoons interests you, feel free to request and check it out. We'll be back next Wednesday with a different Staff Pick.
