Hamptons Summer Beach Read Of The Day: Bed

by CARSON GRIFFITH · September 4, 2009

There's a great remedy for people who don't have the attention span to get through an entire novel, and it comes in the form of short stories. Tao Lin's Bed is comprised of nine short tales, beautifully written in a matter-of-fact way, to tell stories of everyday people in everyday situations in ways we don't normally look at them. A love story about two nine year olds, college students in a busy city, a tale of complete loneliness - while you might feel like you want to hug the first person you see when you're done reading the book, you'll be glad you read it nonetheless.
