The Self-Taught Cook™: BOOK REVIEW: BEAUTIFUL MAN and Other Stories by J...

Jack Mauro's new collection of short stories, Beautiful Man and Other Stories, is set in Knoxville, Tennessee.  All the stories are set in the area of Gay Street in Knoxville.  Although there are some references to the South, this is not a sappy, "Don't y'all just love fried chicken?" type of book.  The setting is a metropolitan area, and the author has developed characters who are universal.  
The author uses the third-person point-of-view throughout the stories, allowing for a more descriptive story.  While some stories, such as Music and Coffee,  grabbed my attention more than others,  they were all good.  
4 stars
