I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY, SO I JUST SAID THANKS

David Joseph

He depicts interactions with subtlety, as characters seek redemption and relief in an effort to find gratitude.Similar to his first book of fiction, The Old Men Who Row Boats and Other Stories, David Joseph displays an ability to draw insights from small moments. The result is a powerful new collection of short fiction. I Didn’t Know What To Say, So I Just Said Thanks captures the awkward silences and empty spaces where time is suspended, and we are forced to consider the complexities of what lies ahead.
