Book Review: Impenetrable Falsehoods by E.W. Storch
Title: Impenetrable Falsehoods
Genre: Short Story Collection
Author: E.W. Storch
In Impenetrable Falsehoods, E.W. Storch explores the human condition in an enjoyable, conversational style. The short fiction in this collection spans a wide range of topics viewed through an emotional microscope. From old love gone good and new love gone bad, the myriad experiences of war, growing old and facing one’s mortality, dementia and depression, and what it means to be a writer, E.W.’s view of both the magical and mundane will transport you to worlds at once familiar and strange.

EW Storch brings a collection of tales that stay with you long after you finish reading them. From the war front to the author’s own laptop, he weaves a spell on every reader that will leave you begging for more.
A well written collection of shorts, this is a testament to the author’s writing ability. I didn’t love every story within it, and honestly have to say that it’s a book for a certain type of reader. I’d say if you like Hemingway or other authors that write with a similar style, then you will enjoy this book.
