it was amazing
Read from October 27 to November 27, 2011

The process of creativity continually intrigues me. Raymond's story plots and settings are similar to mine, yet the voice and execution are completely her own, and it was a delight to sit back and read another writer exploring the issues of travel, landscape, geography, etc., within the context of human relationships. These stories take you from Antarctica to Hawaii, and each one is told in its own voice, which I love. Favorites are "First Sunday," which opens the book, and tells the story of two very different sisters in Tonga; "The Ecstatic Cry," a surprising and revealing story set amongst a penguin colony; and a story that broke my heart, "Lost Art," which centers around a brother and sister and their art inheritance and family baggage. It's a highly original story from a wonderful new voice.
