Beautiful, but I have to admit I have a bias...Halina is a friend. A book club highlight was her visit June 2014. Still, her collection of short stories (reads like a novel) is really good...A club favorite in 2014.
The story about the Cannon family (who own a family cannon) is quirky and thought provoking...a wonderfully poignant family saga....lots of laughs and some tears.
If you're looking for something different from an award winning up and coming author, this is your book.

What a wonderfully constructed (which is to say it doesn't feel constructed at all) collection of stories. They really resonate together, build up a world and a history of worlds old and new. I'm especially impressed with Duraj's confidence in her endings. She trusts us. And the final story, "The Company Keeps," just slayed me. Wow.
