Fiction. "I don't know how Jacob Appel does it. I'm not talking about the fact that Appel is a physician and attorney and teacher in addition to the work that he does with a pencil in his hand. I'm talking, too, about the stories that he writes, stories that are uniquely his own, written with equal doses of heft, hilarity and heart. AMAZING THINGS ARE HAPPENING HERE is an apt title for a collection such as this, filled as it is with a sense of invention and evention or eventiveness that makes Jacob Appel about as original of a voice that you're likely to find if this is the kind of looking you are looking at this book to find."--Peter Markus "In his new short story collection, AMAZING THINGS ARE HAPPENING HERE, Jacob Appel renders our post 9/11 world through a variety of personalities, each narrating their unique and startling stories. Meet the shy high school student with a crush on a girl dying of leukemia, the mother whale who beaches to save her offspring, the search for the VA hospital's lunatic who goes missing and never returns, and more. We are in the hands of a patient, master artist who watches the world unfolding around him, sees its protagonists' inadvertent mistakes, and observes them endeavoring to reclaim their dignity. These stories lift us far above the realm of entertainment, and instead enrich and enliven the psyche's oceanic heights and depths."--Marilyn Krysl… (mer)

Another excellent set of stories from this author. This collection in particular was very good, and I enjoyed that the point-of-view characters were varied and interesting. ( )

Amazing Things Are Happening Here is a well crafted collection of eight short stories by Jacob M. Appel. Within these stories is a diverse group of characters with distinctive voices. Readers meet a judge who married the younger sister of a girl he once loved and who had been murdered, a woman whose husband with dementia wants to marry someone else and the young man who falls in love with the victim of an alligator rodeo. Each story is engrossing enough to be developed into a novel. The author has the remarkable ability to bring the characters vividly to life. Their fictional worlds become very real. The collection takes readers down a path towards different types of human nature. The narratives are punctuated with sharp observations, solid prose and depth. This collection is fiction at its best. Highly recommended.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. The opinions expressed in this review are my own. ( )

Jacob Appel is rapidly becoming one of my favorite authors anywhere. I have had the pleasure now of reading a few collections of his short stories and he continually astounds me with his ability to convey human emotions and feelings in such a way that the characters and the stories hold fast with you long after you have finished reading them. He has the ability to create a world you are sucked into and aren't fully willing to leave, even in the short span of 15-20 pages. A brilliant craftsman with stunningly rich characters weaved into tapestries of what could easily be the life of your next door neighbor, I anxiously await any forthcoming work from this outstanding writer.

I love short stories, and Mr. Appel is a master of concise tales! I’m not often surprised at the conclusion of stories, but was more than once in this collection. Thank you for continuing to deliver interesting, eclectic, and surprising tales for us to enjoy! I look forward to my next adventure at your hands! ( )
