Who likes Amy Hempel?


After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Maybe its already been discussed and i just cant find the thread but, I know Chuck praises Hempel as one of the best writers but no cult members ever really talk about her or put one of her books on their favorite books list. Is it because it is really hard to even find her books or is she not really as good as Chuck says in the cult member's opinions?

I read a small excerpt on amazon and she didnt seem too bad; then again it was like half a page in the middle of the story. But anybody who Chuck loves id figure would be popular
