This book of stories is quite varied. There are realistic stories, and fantastical tales mixed in, but, as the Goodreads summary says, " this collection explores the thin border between magic and grief." I would agree with that. They all share the same beautiful, evocative writing, and I found that I really enjoyed going from one story to the next, not knowing what I would encounter. Some of the stories are pretty hard-hitting, and quite emotional. However, they are thoughtful and thought-provoking. I felt like nothing was wasted here; every word felt chosen with care, and each story carefully crafted.

This might be just the book for a reader who says they don't like short stories because even though it's a single author, there is a lot of variety in the stories. And if you do enjoy short stories, you're in for a real treat.
