Really Good Writing

There are a lot of good books out there, and within them there is a lot of good writing, But, there are very few passages that stick in your mind as superior, as writing so good it transcends just about everything else, writing so good that it takes you somewhere else, makes you feel that you are there, not just reading about it. For me, such a piece of writing is William Kent Krueger’s telling of the derecho early in Northwest Angle. It is a piece of superb storytelling. If you haven’t read the book, you should.
