Summer Reading: "Dead Fish Museum"
In these eight carefully crafted but sometimes overwrought stories, Charles D'Ambrosio picks up where his critically lauded collection "The Point" (1995) left off. "The Dead Fish Museum" contains similarly intelligent, melancholy tales of quiet and strangely familiar people suffering miserably through relationships, jobs and their own psychoses, usually in the moody dampness of Seattle and its surrounding geography.
