"The Girl's Guide To Hunting and Fishing"
by Melissa Bank. An interesting group of essentially short stories
put together in an interesting way. Many of them are based on one
character, Jane, at various ages and her experiences with love. But
there are other stories interspersed, including a particularly unsentimentally
touching story about a woman with breast cancer written specifically
to engage by calling the character "you"--"You're drinking
gasoline to stay warm..." This book is beautifully written and
quite powerful at times. However, I didn't learn how to angle.
