In stories set in such diverse places as Tunisia, Quebec and Baltimore, Porter ( The Kentucky Stories ) conjures up quirky, gritty characters and surrounds them with evocative swatches of local color. The stories meander along, with no startling plot developments but with a delightfully wry realism.

  • I am going to write a book of short stories set in Lithuania, title it "Baltimore", send it to this author, and see if he understands why I hate him.

  • This has got to take the prize for the dumbest title ever. The book has nothing to do with Lithuania. They are not Lithuanian short stories in translation. They are not Lithuanian short stories in inspiration.
    True, the characters do meet some Lithuanians (more accurately, Americans of Lithuanian descent) in Baltimore, but ... that's it.
