Some Possible Solutions by Helen Phillips
Had I not already been acquainted with Phillips' work, I might not have reacted as favorably to this collection; if she is a new author for you, however, this could be as good a place to start as any. This is what many would consider "dystopic fiction," of which I do not usually consider myself a fan; Phillips does it well and so much more.
It's almost as if Phillips is able to stand outside of herself, as a human being, and reflect on the flaws that we are all carrying around from a very objective viewpoint; her characters are so malleable, yet rigid, and their dilemmas, while not something you might expect to face, are brilliantly relatable.
What I love about her work is that she takes the mundane, turns it on its head, and leaves readers wondering, "what if?" When I finish one of these stories I have to really sit back, let it air out, like a sip of wine, and think about all of the implications because there are so many "possible solutions."
While this work is not for everyone, since nothing is, I would highly recommend that you give it a try, especially if you enjoy the format. If you're familiar with short story collections like those of George Saunders or, one of my recent favorites, The Wonder Garden by Lauren Acampora (my thoughts here), you should definitely pick this one up as soon as you can.
