It's planning funerals, what she calls Going Out Parties, in which the clients are the soon-to-be-deceased themselves. In "Life Prerecorded," perhaps McCorkle's finest short piece to date, the pregnant narrator finds the real meaning of new life by visiting with a very old neighbor who's waiting, too, for his own new life. In these and the rest of the nine stories, Jill McCorkle acts on her penchant for taming the outrageous, humanizing the forbidden, and grounding the hilarious. All Is Bright.

Fave quotes: "I had that same odd feeling that I get from time to time, the feeling that maybe I can pick up the phone and call…my grandmother at those memorized numbers long disconnected.
This does not meant that you agree with it, just that you say, yes, that is what happened. And then you walk off and leave it there; it is not your mess to clean up. Sep 03, Tracy rated it really liked it. I loved this collection of short stories. I wasn't sure in the first few pages, I cared for the writing style but by page 5 I was hooked and actually mourned the end of each story like you mourn your youth. I especially loved the last story, about the Priest which has haunted me since I finished it.
I read it all in one afternoon, in one big gulp, unable to set it down. Thanks for a thought provoking read that has me playing my old vinyls in my head. Oct 28, Lisa rated it liked it Shelves: did-not-finish. SO not my cup.
